A novel by

 
 
When schoolgirl Lisa Martin vanishes along Flintlock Lane, between Midriven Village and legend-haunted Robbers Wood, newcomers claim she ran off with a boy. Village elders know better. No runaway, they say, but another victim of the Beast, a nameless monster older than humanity, an avatar of the Old Gods. DCI Arthur Ravyn and DS Leo Stark are sent to investigate, but the old folk know it is a foolish quest. The Old Gods don't give up what they take. If anything, the two detectives will surely perish. What chance do two country coppers stand against the Old Gods? After all, this is Hammershire County, where change comes slowly if at all, where the past often intrudes upon the present, and where old things sometimes refuse to die.
