Summary from the publisher: "The town of Mount Henry appeared to be the epitome of the American dream: a small town filled with clean-cut folks, obviously obeying the laws of the land and making a living the best that they could. So why did strange rumors persist of mysterious creatures -- rumors so prevalent that they drew Edgar Benedek with his reluctant partner Jonathan MacKensie to investigate? And after they failed to unearth a single monster or even the ghost of one, why did the Ghostbusters come to town? ... As the two teams are forced to work together to solve the mystery of the Mount Henry monster, they also learn that one should never rely on first impressions -- of people or the nature of what they are investigating."

From a distributor Agent With Style: "A small Iowa river town is home to a primordial underwater creature that can only be controlled by a hereditary guardian. When the entity snatches first Edgar Benedek and then Egon Spengler and drags them down beneath the Mississippi, the remaining Ghostbusters and Jonathan MacKensie can't be sure they are even alive, or if there is a way to stop the beast without destroying the young woman who controls it."
