Who knew Columbia, SC, could be so scary?  Julie Bates discovers a corpse in front of the Assembly Street Post Office the same day arson destroys her home, but Julie's story is not a mystery, it's horror--southern style.  Police Officer Nate Adams thinks the killer who raped and murdered Julie's mother the year before is stalking her, but Julie's tormenter is not human.  The well-known ghosts of South Carolina barely skim the surface of the paranormal that awaits Julie Bates in Columbia, South Carolina.  Move over, Amityville, NY.  This southern town is right up there beside you on the scale of terror.
