When Pete, Nancy and Krish arrive at Heathland Camp for a school trip, they're in for an adventure - just not the kind they were expecting. Nearby sits the abandoned Harwood Institute. The crumbling buildings reek of secrets and at night strange screams come from the surrounding forest.

But the forest is hiding a sinister secret, and the trio could be in real danger … Are some mysteries best left undisturbed?
