A diary of a dead man tels tales that are hard to believe. Read the entries, and learn the story of Helen and Bill. The couple examine the house and property they just bought. The outbuildings are in fine condition, but the house is worn down. A caretaker warns of the coffin, and of the dead that walk.
He tells how old Conners came to town, died, and was seen walking through town again to deal death. Will Helen and Bill take the story to heart, and leave these parts? Or is it too late for them?
Who is that strange man they saw hanging around their hotel? Why does he bother them so much? Even after fleeing town, and a hundred miles away, fears, and that strange man relentlessly follow them. Will they be safe back in their own home? Months go by, but the slowly shambling zombie closes in to fulfil his promise.
