Best selling author Mike Noonan suffers from massive writer’s bloke after the death of his wife and then experiences horrendous nightmares of their curiously named Derry holiday retreat, Sara Laughs.  Yet he is drawn there, to his old typewriter and possibly, to write again.  But Derry has changed, clutched in the grip of tyrannical millionaire Max Devore and his terrifying skeletal book-keeper.  Devore is determined to get custody of his three year old niece Kyra, child of his deceased brother. When the child and her young mother turn to Mike for help, he can’t resist their plea. But there are much more sinister forces at Sara Laughs that will try to stand in their way.
