Twila's trying to handle this situation on her own, unaware the entity that's shadowing her is a test for even her formidable abilities. It's Jack who spots the weird creature in Twila's little red car, after he arrives in Ohio to spend some time fishing with Twila's husband Jess. As soon as Jack calls them, Alice and Granny pack up what they need to help, along with Trucker and Miss Molly, and hie-tail it to Yankee land.
Twila's beautiful old farmhouse on the edge of deep Ohio woods filled with historical burial mounds is too peaceful to be dangerous. Or perhaps that's what lulls the local residents into believing their lives are as serene as those of the Amish residents with whom they co-exist. It takes the capture of a murderer and the exposure of a hidden society of clever creatures to sort this new adventure out.
