Cora's mum is back in hospital. Nobody ever says why. Her dad sends Cora and little Mimi to stay with their great-aunt Ida in her crumbling house way out on the marshes, an eerie place where the windows are bolted shut, strange voices sing at night and terrifying secrets lurk around every corner.
But the isolated church of All Hallows holds even greater terrors for the sisters and their new friends Robert and Pete. Here the ghosts of children slain by Long Lankin appear. And now he's coming for Mimi...
Set in 1958, this historical ghost-story grips you in its clammy claws right from the start. Not for the faint-hearted, this mesmerising tale generates goosebumps on almost every page.
