Gilead is a sleepy New England town with more than its share of dark secrets. Jack and Jill are two half-crazed teenage lovers that can’t wait to get out—if they don’t kill each other first. Simon Stark is a private detective with secrets of his own, who’s come to Gilead in search of a mysterious painting. Hope Hadley is a normal teenage girl in Gilead for depressingly mundane reasons—a court ordered visit with her estranged father. No one is prepared for the horde of bloodthirsty vampires that will forever shatter the quiet of Gilead’s nights. But they are coming.
