Abstract:

Seeking a retreat from her failing marriage in a remote Scottish island house, Zoe disregards local superstitions about the property's tragic history until her peaceful retreat is disrupted by strange and disturbing events.

Seeking a retreat from her failing marriage in the McBride house, on a remote Scottish island, Zoe disregards local superstitions about the property's tragic history. A century ago, a young widow and her son died mysteriously there; just last year a local boy, visiting for a dare, disappeared without a trace. Her peaceful retreat is disrupted by strange and disturbing events: nighttime intrusions; unknown voices; a constant sense of being watched. The locals believe these incidents are echoes of the house's dark past. Can Zoe uncover the truth before she is silenced? -- adapted from jacket
