But it's all brought up again when the town's quaint tradition of creating a time capsule every fifty years reveals a macabre set of predictions dating back to days before the murder/suicide. Someone predicted Cindy Blaylock's death, and forty-nine other tragedies, which have been occurring right on time for more than a decade.

But as she and Sean race to stop the next predictions from coming true, they find themselves caught in a terrifying mind game with no rules . . . and life or death consequences"-- Provided by publisher.
