Harold Pierce didn't mean to kill his baby brother all those years ago.
He didn't intend to incinerate him in a fire but he did and he has spent most of his adult life in a psychiatric hospital because of that.

Pierce and Harvey, both disturbed and guarding terrible secrets, are about to unleash a terror beyond belief...
