Summary

On the brink of a breakdown, two years after the death of his fiancée, Jim Hawkes quits his high-powered job in the city to rent a cottage in the Devonshire countryside seeking some well-needed rest. But Slyford St. James is far from the peaceful haven Jim was hoping for.

Almost immediately, he is plagued by strange occurrences: a combination lock that won’t open, loud noises in the attic, the figure of a little girl always just out of sight. His new village friends, Jed and Emma, are convinced Jim has found his way to the village for a reason, to solve the mystery surrounding the suspicious death of a child. But as Jim is haunted by the ghosts of his past and endangered by a real-world threat in the present, it soon becomes apparent that true evil never dies.

Female character’s need work

Brilliant story really enjoyed it but and it’s a big but, the narrator is good right up to the point of portraying a female character then it becomes slightly annoying, not enough to make you turn off but his trouble with the girlfriends voice is most noticeable. Hoping the next book has a different narrator or at least a noticeable improvement.

Loved it!

I truly enjoyed this story and I couldn’t stop listening. The narrator was awesome and brought so much life to the characters. I look forward to more books by this author.
