Pre-order the darkly compelling new novel from the Sunday Times bestselling author of The Chalk Man, The Taking of Annie Thorne and The Other People
Reverend Jack Brooks and daughter Flo are looking for a fresh start and Chapel Croft appears the perfect place.
But this village has a dark and dangerous history - and the ghosts of its past refuse to stay buried.
Five hundred years ago, eight Protestant martyrs were burnt at the stake. Thirty years ago, two girls disappeared without a trace. And two months ago, the last vicar committed suicide - but not before leaving a message for Jack.
Jack must uncover the truth, or risk sacrificing the village to the evils that lie within.
But the truth is hard to find, when everyone has something to hide. And as long-buried secrets of Jack's own resurface, faith alone will not save them...
