Eric disappeared when he was three years old. Ben looked away for only a second at the grocery store, and his brother was gone. Vanished right into the sticky air of the Florida Panhandle. Five years later, Ben still looks for his brother. Now 20 and desperate for work, he takes a night stock job at the only place that will have him: the store that blinked Eric out of existence. Ben can feel that there’s something wrong there. With the people. With his boss. There’s something wrong with the air itself. He knows the store has much to tell him. So he keeps searching. Keeps looking for his baby brother, while missing the most important message of all: That he should have stopped looking.
