Front Cover
Penguin Books, Limited, Jan 21, 2021 - 400 pages
This village has a dark and dangerous history: 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. For Rev Jack Brooks and teenage daughter Flo it's supposed to be a fresh start. New job, new home. But, as Jack knows, the past isn't easily forgotten
