Jack's a war hero, haunted by his past... or is he just haunted?
A war-damaged veteran on a mission to self-destruct…
… a controlling father pushing him ever closer to the edge…
… and a yachtswoman who gives all she has to hold him back.
And between them all, there’s an old boat with dark secrets, and perhaps a mind of its own.
‘A terrific and compelling story which highlights mental and physical challenges that many who have served will recognise.’
General Sir Nick Parker, Commander British Forces Afghanistan 2010

You cannot escape the past
A young archaeologist uncovers her dream find; the peat-preserved body of a Saxon warrior.
Nearby, a car crashes, and a man sees something inexplicable at the edge of death.
Their stories will become inextricably linked as the present echoes the ancient, bloody past.
“Once there was a great classical tradition of rural British horror from MR James to The Wicker Man. Now Geoffrey Gudgion has revived the style, proving there’s still nothing as creepy as the countryside.”
Christopher Fowler, author of Hell Train and the Bryant & May mysteries
