Product Description

A wonderfully evocative ghost story in the great tradition of M. R. James and Daphne Du Maurier with a contemporary edge.

Perfect for Halloween and illustrated in Norm’s own gorgeous style.

“Every village has its stories – those of the living – and those of the dead.”

After the sudden death of his twin sister, 14 year old James Reynolds becomes obsessed with her tale of a black hound, a folkloric creature that is regarded as a portent of death. Enlisting the aid of his elderly neighbour, who the local children call ‘The Witch’, he delves into the centuries of village history, folklore, and ghosts, until he uncovers a deeper secret beyond his darkest nightmares, beyond the sight of most, and beyond the mortal veil.

Set in the South Downs of England, a place that has been home to Celts, Romans, and Vikings, James’s story is interwoven with tales from his village that also blur the line between the living and the dead.
