Since Chris' father died when he was a boy, Chris has been haunted by nightmares. But now it is coming to a head and his son is getting nightmares too. He needs to go back to Cornwall and exorcise the demons from his and his father's past.
This is another creepy story by this author. Things can be meandering along and then the tension is ramped up. The author's descriptions are extremely compelling and I was biting my nails at times.
Thinking back on this now, I can feel the greyness and dampness of Cornwall. Which to me shows what a great storyteller David Haynes is.
