Now having a fresh lead on a potential treasure, the members of the Scorch family set off for the verdant jungle islands that used to be Japan. After a harrowing journey across the sea, they arrive at their destination ready to claim fortune and glory for their family. But they have to deal with inhospitable conditions, and natives who may or may not try to eat them. And to top it all off, it look like a rival treasure hunting team might have gotten there first.
Thousands of years after human civilization has fallen, a new civilization has risen in its place, consisting of the fauna of Earth uplifted by the virus that brought humanity down. In this new world steps in a powerful family; the Scorches. Led by their matriarch, Lucille Scorch, the family has fallen on very hard times. Now, the grandchildren of the Scorch family must turn to their society’s most beloved and dangerous pastime; delving into the old ruins of the human world for riches and prestige. An endeavor that might lead the Scorch grandchildren to more than they bargained for.
The Fairfield Sanitarium holds a dark secret. If the investigators hope to learn it, they must infiltrate the institute to see what the nefarious conspirators are doing late at night to an innocent patient. No matter how much they discover before they delve into the sanitarium, they will never be prepared for what they find. The horrors from beyond beckon!
The investigators have found that the new Fairfield Sanitarium is most unusual. A missing woman apparently resides there as a patient, undergoing strange treatments. The wealthy heir who finances it visits late at night through a secret underground tunnel. What does it all mean? Deeper the team goes into the dark, the more truth they shall find…at a cost.
The cryptic document, apparently written by Dr. Armitage, references a sanitarium, recently built. The patients and staff have secrets worth investigating. There is also a yacht club in nearby Kingsport, which might have information about this strange case. The investigators begin their work, but even a cursory amount of research is not without its risks.
