There is a house, hidden away in a small valley that holds a dark and dreadful secret. The house is called Neath. There is a psychic who lives in that house and is part of its secret. His name is Kline. There is a guardian of the house, and of the psychic, and the secret. He is known as The Keeper. Together, in an unholy union, they serve a force whose existence threatens mankind itself. But now a terrible danger is sensed and an outsider must protect them all. The outsider is Halloran, and he is unaware of the insidious evil he must face. He will learn of a multinational corporation’s strange method of detecting new mineral resources; he will combat men who thrive on the worst of physical corruption; he will find love of a perverse nature; he will confront the darkness of his own soul. And eventually, Halloran will discover the horrific and awesome secret of the Sepulchre.
