Crimson Tassels - Brian Nowak
Jack and Elizabeth should have it all. They saw the world as optimistic newlyweds, enjoying the prime of their lives with a home in the rural backcountry of Illinois. For him, it offered a place to establish himself on his new career as a college professor and for her, an ideal place to raise their children. Moving away from everything they knew and loved was a difficult decision, but one they undertook to follow Jack’s dream.
Jack knew the home needed work, but since it was structurally sound, he wasn’t too worried. The home came filled with furniture they could go through like archeologists studying how the people who abandoned the home thirty years ago lived.
A series of strange occurrences, and even stranger dreams, convince them that something in the house might be out to get them. When they finally decide it is time to leave the home for a better living situation they discover leaving isn’t so easy. A malevolent spirit named Marylyn needs something from them and will stop at nothing to get it.

Their leader, a wild-eyed, cunning brute, refuses to let the couple leave, believing they and their potential offspring hold the key to surviving underground. Are Karen and Jeremy doomed to spend their lives inside this sunless, subterranean wasteland, or do they escape before their minds shatter and their bodies betray them?
