NOW, NOW, NOW… centers on characters that are receiving a mysterious email, a children’s song with a series of numbers at the end. The song places the readers in a trance-like state causing strange people and events to enter their lives.

People are being kidnapped and their loved ones are left behind to solve the mystery and fight back, but will they?
