Deep in the woods that slide off into Stone Creek Swamp, teenage drug dealers retrieve their stash and receive an unexpected dividend-the unwitting resurrection of Cain, powerful Bokor of Black Magic. Atop Coleman Hill, two young attorneys renovate a decrepit relic of a house for their home and office. A house with a past it wants to share, showing Ria Knight tantalizing scenes of its original owner, Dr. Paul Devlin. Dr. Devlin's not exactly alive and well, but he's not dead either. With Cain's resurrection, the battle between the two first begun in 1888 rages again. Because the past, like evil, never dies. It just-waits.
"The Canterville Ghost" is a short story written by Oscar Wilde and first published in 1887 in "The court and society review". It is, together with Lord Arthur Savile's crime, one of Wilde's most famous short stories. An American family decides to move into an English manor which happens to be haunted by a four-century old ghost. Many events occur, ranging from the dark comical to the outright funny. At the end...a great twist... One of the best displays of Wilde's extraordinary talent.
