'A deft and daring blend of mystery and dark fantasy . . . Richly imagined and beautifully written, it lingers in the mind long after the last page is turned' - George R.R. Martin

Blending mystery, thrills and fantasy, this standalone novel from award-winning author Lisa Tuttle will leave you looking over your shoulder . . .

Laura Lensky's daughter, Peri, has been missing for two years. For the police it's a closed case - she wanted to run away - but for her mother and boyfriend, Hugh, it's a different story.

When Laura hires private investigator Ian Kennedy, it is a last-ditch attempt to find her daughter before she leaves for America.

Drawn in by strange parallels to an obscure Celtic myth and his first, almost unexplainable case, Ian takes the job. But his beliefs are about to be stretched to their limit - there are darker and more devious forces at work here than any of them imagined . . .

'It will make the hairs stand up on the back of your head. It will make you imagine things you've never imagined before. And it will make you think. It is her best novel to date' - Michael Moorcock
