He's run away home. That's what they say every time one ofCharley Winslow's friends vanishes from The Old Cross School forBoys. It's just a tall tale. That's what they tell Charley when hesees the ragged grey figure stalking the abbey halls at night. WhenCharley follows his pet insects to a pool of blood behind a falsewall, he could run and let those stones bury their secrets. Hecould assimilate, focus on his studies, and wait for his father tosend for him. Or he could walk the dark tunnels of the school'sheart, scour its abandoned passages, and pick at the scab of afamily's legacy of madness and murder. With the help of SamForster, the school's gardener, and Matron Grace, the staff nurse,Charley unravels Old Cross' history and exposes a scandalstretching back to when the school was a home with a noble familyand a dark secret—a secret that still haunts its halls withscraping steps, twisting its bones into a new generation ofnightmares.
