It is said that we fear that which we do not understand. That we cloak those fears with doubt, and that over time, they become fairy tales and nightmares. But what would happen if our fears became a reality? And so it came to pass. ~~~~ For some speak in hushed tones of the dark ones. They say they wait and watch from the shadows. DCI Crawford knew the truth, for he had faced those very demons and survived. Now only months away from retirement, he is assigned one last case. A series of strange and inexplicable murders. And as the killer weaves a trail of deception, an old adversary returns to orchestrate a new reign of terror from the shadows.

About the author (2012)

Mike Carter lives and works in a small town in the industrial heart of Nottinghamshire. Growing up, he was surrounded by lace mills, canals, and rolling fields, not far from Sherwood Forest where legend has it that Robin Hood once roamed. On leaving school, Mike fulfilled a childhood ambition to join the armed forces and first developed an interest in writing during long winter nights in Germany. On returning to the United Kingdom, he worked in the medical profession for a number of years before finally taking up a management position in the field of health and safety. Mike’s interest in writing led to the publishing of a children’s book and a book of short horror stories. In 2011, he published part 1 of a trilogy of horror novels, Shadows, featuring fictional detective DCI Stan Crawford. Wickham is the second part of the trilogy.
