No one knows the truth... though everyone has seen it before... Joshua Triplow is just your average boy living a normal life, doing the normal things boys do, in what he believes is the best place on Earth: Corona, California. Only a recurring nightmare begins to plague him - and all the other children in the best place on Earth. A nightmare of a man in black... the very same who haunts his father's tortured childhood. In the relentless nightly assault on his son, Bob begins to understand that what has been left behind half a world away, in another lifetime - another dimension - has found a way to thrive... He learns there are no colors but black in a place far over the rainbow and his sanity becomes the ultimate struggle. While Joshua confronts a universe of lost souls... and a menagerie of clocks maddeningly ticking away the hour to nowhere. To the endless plains of Black Eternity. To nothingness... where everything he has left behind can be lost in an instant.
