This is the very assured debut novel from Gary (who, maybe I ought to point out, I know and have worked with), a ghost/monster story that grips the reader and never really lets go.

Three years ago Guy Renford found a knife-wielding burglar in his baby daughter’s bedroom.

Guy is a man who has been in jail for three years because of a murder he committed defending his child during a break-in, Rosie is a young woman who has lived through a series of horrific, abusive relationships and both of them are being drawn back to the deluged town of Stonegrave where an all-consuming cosmic horror has been unleashed in the name of revenge.
