In 1936, something concealed in a ruby-colored sphere plummeted to earth. It impacted and buried itself in the dense woodlands behind the Taylor's large farmhouse in Grand Junction, Georgia. The sphere remained dormant for forty years before it was discovered by the Taylor family.
The result of that terrifying discovery consumed most of the Taylor family – literally. Pat Taylor lost all but his son, Roger, and was so overwhelmed with fear that he slipped into a coma from which he would never recover. The last words Roger heard from his father were 'Never go to the house... black as midnight... eyes of fire... '
Sheriff Robert Hudson called his FBI friend, Mark Granger, to help him piece together a fifty-year-old puzzle that had plagued Grand Junction with numerous unexplained disappearances. These disappearances were on the increase, and the reality of their in-depth investigation put them in the middle of a hideous nightmare. With the discovery of a leather-bound diary, their assumption became bizarre. Their efforts to stop the Dark Figure were futile, yet it was growing stronger each moment. However, their plight did not go unnoticed – they were not alone!
