Product description

FIRST EDITION, SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR: This hard cover book is in very good condition overall. There are a few small markings on the cover, but it has no major issues overall. The jacket also has some visible markings, and also some fraying along some edges and corners. The original price is included in the jacket, and has not been clipped. Inside, the pages of the book appear to have no issues, apart from a couple of marks, and perhaps some very slight discolouration on the edges of the pages. As mentioned above, the book is a first edition, and appears to have been signed by the author. It is worth mentioning however, that due to this book being a donation, we cannot personally verify the signature.

An idyllic village is thrown into turmoil in the startling, heart-racing new thriller from the author of Sacrifice . How did it all begin? I suppose it would be the day I rescued a new-born baby from a poisonous snake, heard the news of my mother's death and encountered my first ghost . . . Veterinary surgeon Clara Benning is young and intelligent, but practically a recluse. Disfigured by a childhood accident, she lives alone and shies away from human contact whenever possible. But when a man dies following a supposed snake bite, the victim's post mortem shows a higher concentration of venom than could ever be found in a single snake. Assisted by her softly spoken neighbour, and an eccentric reptile expert, Clara unravels sinister links to a barbaric ancient ritual, an abandoned house and a fifty-year-old tragedy that left the survivors fiercely secretive. Then the village's inventive attacker strikes again, and Clara's own solitary existence is brutally invaded. For someone the truth must remain buried in the past - even if they have to kill to keep it there.
