David has been summoned to Morecambe, a place he hoped he'd never see again. It's winter and the English seaside town is dead. David knows exactly how it feels. Empty for as long as he can remember, he depends too much on a past filled with the excitements of drink, drugs, and emotionless sex. The friends that sustained him -- Helen and Seamus -- are here now, and together they aim to pinpoint the source of the violence that has suddenly exploded into their lives. They drive each other further into a territory of fear, suspicion, and threat as old bitternesses are rekindled, ancient haunts are revisited. The phantoms of the past are coalescing and something is coming home to roost.

User Review  - Lyndsey - Goodreads

I remember reading this about 13 years ago and being intrigued by its bleak and slightly gruesome tale. Williams hasn't popped up on my radar since but I intend to look out for his later books now. Read full review
