A novel of chilling menace and powerful atmosphere set in haunted fen country. Her new job negotiating sales for Holtbury Prestige Homes takes Abbie Parker to sinister Black Fen. From the moment she arrives, Abbie falls prey to bizarre incidents both on the building site and in the surrounding wet-lands. The unwanted attentions of a deranged clergyman, the increasingly odd behaviour of her soldier boyfriend, growing awareness of the appalling abuse heaped on a strange little girl, all of these are trial enough. But Abbie's real nightmares begins with the disembodied voices of singing children, the constant reappearance of a battered prayerbook... and the gloating laughter of Martha Robinson, hanged for infanticide a century earlier.
