After what feels like a lifetime of mayhem, Simon Ellice returns to the Hampshire village where he grew up.
He enjoys the solace and tranquility of rural life, working on a farm and getting to know the lively locals, but suddenly Si walks right into a deadly mystery. Old friends are going missing and then turning up dead. Someone from the City is spreading their evil tentacles and Si dives into London's underworld to uncover a conspiracy of poisoning, murder and pagan ritual that threatens those closest to him.
Written with Humphris’ razor-sharp style, this is Simon Ellice's darkest and most challenging adventure yet, touching on themes of sacrifice and objectification, that threaten the very foundations of our civilised world.
'Written with impressive energy, invention and wit.' - Martin Fletcher
"The precision with which the author applies detail brings everything to remarkable life creating a hyper-reality which is entirely appropriate for the decentred characters, the exuberance of unfettered youth, the Tarantino-esque relish for random violence.” Martin Fletcher (on Rod Humphris)
“This author captures my sense of humor and it has been times innumerable that my reading of his books had me laughing so loud it disturbed people around me!” N.N.Light
