New England preacher Benjamin Conroy thought he had it all figured out: The keys to his family's eternal salvation lay in an ancient Egyptian ritual to the god Osiris. Following a little black magic - and the crucifiction of his entire family - the Conroys would rise from the dead, united for all of eternity, bringing salvation to the world. Assuming, that is, that the ritual went off with out a hitch. But for the Conroys, things went drastically wrong, and death was just the beginning of their suffering.
Seventeen years later, 18-year-old Johnny Petrie receives a letter from a lawyer stating that he is the sole heir to the Conroy estate, a property valued at nearly two million dollars. Seeking to escape the isolation of his overprotective, religious zealot family, Johnny leaves Manhattan on the morning of his father's suicide, seeking a new life.
What follows is a roller-coaster ride of chills as Johnny begins to realize that he has inherited far more than an estate.

Story started out pretty good, interesting premise, but couldn't get past the ridiculous dialog and the story went downhill fast. Couldn't even finish it, but struggled thru most. Narration was ok, better than the story anyway.
