A novel by

 
 
From out of the bog alongside the ancient track to the fenland village of Hexney, a line of deep freshly-made footprints runs, trodden into the dry surface of the abandoned droveway. Are these footprints, or hoofprints, or what? Triangular, eight or nine inches long, they're set in a line one in front of another. And, each night, the footprints are advancing steadily towards the village. When a young boy's body is found in the marsh, the superstitious villagers' ire is directed at a young stranger who'd taken his picture before he'd disappeared. Photographer Bronwen Powys finds an ally in the mysterious Dr. Alexander Caspian, who's been investigating the footprints--and before long they'll be fighting the dark forces of evil for their very lives and souls. An absolutely chilling tale of horror and redemption!
