Leaving Miami for the sunny shores of Panama City was supposed to be a good thing for the Rankin family. Vicky has just earned her private detective license. Her husband Rick has landed a job as manager of a motel, where he can write his westerns in peace. And maybe now their teen-age son Rusty will outgrow the rebellious phase he’s going through. But things arent going to be that simple. Instead, they are drawn into the nefarious doings of Snag, proprietor of a mysterious museum on the edge of town where boards creak, cadavers reek, and laughter echoes down from the rafters.
