Justin Prentiss was buried alive in Bright Arch, Asher MacLean's private camp-school for unruly teenager boys. It's based on discipline and team-work in contact with nature. Jane wins the kids' confidence by ridiculing abuse instructor Missy Jenkins. Grumpy, scary neighbor Marshall Winston complains about vandalism. It was the work of Z Krew, a secret society among the boys which they claim is run by the undead ax-murderer Zachariah.
