Lis London had hoped that a move to the country would allow her to escape not only the bullies but also her recurring nightmares. Instead, she manages to fall out with the in-crowd and finds herself mixed up in events which may be linked to a brutal murder. Local legends of witchcraft are resurrected in the wake of the terrible crime and an escalation of seemingly inexplicable and sinister events leaves Lis unsure who to trust as she becomes convinced that her nightmares might come true.
Exploring themes of bullying, obsession, hysteria and marginalisation, this thriller truly deserves the epithet ‘page-turner’. Cleverly plotted, and beautifully characterised, it is dark, scary and utterly compelling with an ending as unexpected as it is terrifying.
