by Esme Waters

A thriller, with strong comedic notes, in which a murder has occurred in an isolated village – and seems to have otherworldly origins. Michael, a resident in the village, is intrigued and soon discovers that his wife, Lara, is responsible for the crime, and, furthermore, has concealed her terrifying, true identity. When suspicion falls on Michael he realises the full extent of Lara’s betrayal, and soon Michael and his uncle Frederick appear to be at her mercy. Denied access to outside help, they are forced to use their ingenuity to escape her non-human clutches.
