Description

'Powerful' Guardian

'Haunting' Independent

How close can you get to the truth...before you become the target?

Jerry Morner lives quietly in a cabin by the old quarry, hurting no one. Or that's what he wants people to believe. It takes one spark and a can of petrol to expose the truth.

The fire is deadly. Not for Jerry, but for the two strangers found burnt to death inside.

His son starts to search for answers. But he soon realises that some secrets are better left to the dead.
