The year is 1973, yet in the little sleepy town of Riley you would be forgiven for thinking it was 1920. A little small town still living in the past, things are simple in little old Riley. Or were. The Lake has come. No one knows exactly what it is, where it came from, or what it wants, all they know is it brings with it the stench of death. For a sleepy little town Riley sure holds a lot of secrets. And they can't be kept forever. The Lake is here. And it's getting bigger.
