About this book:

In this fabulous little ghostly novel there is a charming simplicity that makes it an effortless and enjoyable read and then things get less simple than they seemed.

The year is 1945 and Martin Heath has returned from the war a changed man; broken and struggling to settle. So when an old comrade suggests a new life working in the remote wilds of Dartmoor, he takes it. Part ghost story and part detective it is more than the sum of its parts.
