'Unputdownable... Helen Sedgwick saw into the future and that future is now! It's an incredible book! READ IT.' Lemn Sissay on When the Dead Come Calling

Gone but not forgotten...

An archaeological dig exposes a brutal history and a witness finally speaks. It seems the wickedness swirling in the harsh sea air of Burrowhead might be excised at last.

But before DI Georgie Strachan can lift the veil of evil, a black horse is slaughtered on an altar in the woods and human remains begin to surface. Sinister rituals connect past and present but no one wants to see, or tell, or hear, the truth. Soon Georgie must face the question: where do the missing souls of the village gather?

– Scotland on Sunday

‘[Sedgwick] sustains a suspenseful atmosphere of psychological and supernatural unease that will have you glancing nervously over your shoulder.’
