A supernatural thriller from the author of the chilling Merrily Watkins Mysteries.

For Bethan, a schoolteacher, the old superstitions woven into the social fabric of her West Wales village are primitive and distasteful, which is why she’s pleased to welcome the sophisticated newcomers: London journalist Giles Freeman and his wife Claire. Surely they’ll let in some fresh air?

But the Freemans are keen to absorb this different culture, a whole new way of life, rejecting the advice of an old colleague who warns them of a hard and bitter land where they’ve always danced on the edge of the abyss. They soon learn that this community hides an ancient, bloody, and pagan secret – one that will haunt them forever.
