Some twenty-five years have passed since Paul Adams left Gritten. Now, with his mother’s health seriously deteriorating, he reluctantly returns to the house where he grew up, to the place where his friend died in a ritualistic murder.
But as his mother lies close to death, he discovers that the grisly murder has inspired a copycat. Charlie Crabtree vanished after the murder all those years ago. And now someone is following him. Will the long-held, closely-guarded secrets of the past finally reveal the truth?
