|A psychological mystery, with a paranormal edge, set in North Pembrokeshire.
Kate Lawrence has a problem with death. It won't leave her alone. She's
tuned into its shadows, whether it's happening a hundred miles away or
whether it happened a hundred years ago. In her struggle to cope with
her unwelcome gift, she has frozen people out of her life. Her marriage
is on the rocks, her career is in chaos and she urgently needs to get a
grip. So she decides to start again, by joining her effervescent
cousiin Sylvia and partner Michael in their mission to restorie and
revitalise an old mansion in the wilds of North Pembrokeshire.
It is certainly a new start, but it takes Kate to a place that is bound
to be thick with the shadows of past deaths. She is determined to learn
to face them down - so determined that she fails to notice new shadows
that are erupting around her. Shadows that, perhaps, she is helping to
was one of those stories with a bit of everything – strong and
sympathetic characters, well drawn and sometimes complex emotions and
relationships, real shocks and surprises, a real edge of darkness and
evil, a wonderful sense of place with superb descriptions, a touch of
romance, a cracking story."

with the unsettling 'shadows' the book trails a meticulously drawn cast
of characters in its wake. The writing is sharp, witty and ironic; the
story beautifully paced."
