DARKNESS FOLLOWS WHEREVER HE GOES
John Black returns to Northern England for a family funeral, having left the woman he loves to protect her from his past.
His solace is broken as the sands shift, crows and gulls circle overhead, and children run on the beach where John used to play as a child... and where a body is found in the dunes by Cross Hill — the body of a woman John once knew.
With a set of coordinates left for him in a haunted pub, the body count grows, and the police are made fully aware of John’s connection.
As he drives the ancient coastal and rural landscapes, from Alnwick Castle, Hadrian’s Wall, Cragside to Kielder, racing to confront the killers, John wrestles the pain of bringing the evils of his past to his homelands and to all who know him.
WILL DEATH EVER LEAVE HIM?
