Cornwall, 1844. On a lonely farm not far from Jamaica Inn, farmhand Shilly finds love in the arms of Charlotte Dymond. Charlotte has many secrets, and when she’s found on the moor with her throat cut, Shilly is determined to discover who is responsible. But so is the stranger calling himself Mr Williams, who throws Shilly into the bewildering new world of modern detection.

Based on historical events, Falling Creatures probes the dark heart of Victorian Cornwall in the shadow of gallows justice. In a place where the dead lie uneasy in their graves, to find a murderer, a young woman must first learn who she can trust.
