SOME THINGS DISAPPEAR WITHOUT A TRACE – OTHERS REAPPEAR WITH A VENGEANCE
Peter and Sarah's marriage has reached an impasse. In order to mend old wounds, bandage past pain, they escape to the wilderness of beautiful Cornwall for a break. Their spacious holiday home oozes charm and originality. It has space for their writing, their painting, their reconciliation – a dream come true. But it is a house with its own memories, its own unforgotten horrors. Its guests are not to know that…
When the locals are less hospitable than they could be, when the grand old house sighs with its secrets, the sands of their marriage shift. Then Sarah vanishes and Peter is alone: or is he?
This haunting tale of dark terror, of possession, of children long gone, and a vengeance too monstrous to imagine is nail-bitingly, grippingly and horribly credible.
