A distress signal goes out from a ghost ship that's been lost for over forty years...but what the salvage team finds upon their arrival will haunt them for the rest of their lives. New York Times bestselling author Joe Hill tempts you to explore the wreckage and discover where ghost stories start.
The Carpenter Salvage team, accompanied by a Marine Biologist eager to retrieve lost data and a company man looking to protect information and assets, are sent to recover what remains of the Derleth. But when they arrive and begin exploration of the ship and the island it crashed next to--they discover something much more menacing than they could've ever expected.
There's something down in the icy darkness of the Arctic sea...something that doesn't want to be found. Unlike on land, where terror shows itself as the long-lost crew of the Derleth emerges from caves. They seem as though they haven't aged a day--it's as if they're exactly the same as the day they disappeared...except they're all missing their eyes.
Will the salvage crew survive to bring their findings to shore? What danger waits for them if they fail? What dangers await us all should they succeed?
