Product Description

Something is wrong in Shane’s neighborhood. As he unravels the mystery behind the animal disappearances--that have occurred over several decades--the signs lead him to the listless Old Man Fischer. One night, he and his mother visit the elderly man, who then tell them a tale about his childhood and life as a researcher at the university.

As he shares his life, Old Man Fischer describes the opportunity to be on a spectacular new project in Central America. Along with his new wife, the objective is to catalogue new species in the canopies of the Costa Rican rainforest. However, the eruption of Mount Arenal shakes the country. Upon the demands of the university, he must take Jillian and his team to explore a new region that was unearthed from the explosion. As its wonder easily engulfs him, tragedy quickly strikes which leaves his wife in a catatonic state.

Over the next few days as more animals are disappearing, Shane laments over the man’s life in the rainforest and questions the event at the volcano. What are you hiding, Old Man Fischer? He finally asks himself and realizes that the answers lie in the man’s house! In a roller coaster of an ending, Shane will discover Old Man Fischer’s secrets and uncover the mystery in his neighborhood after all these years…
