"Una oscura historia se agita en Chapel Croft. A una larga lista de desapariciones y muertes se une la del sacerdote de la parroquia local, que se ahorc̤ en su propia iglesia hace solo unas semanas. Para sustituirlo, llega al pueblo Jack Brooks. Trae consigo una hija de catorce ąos y una conciencia atormentada, aunque conf̕a en empezar aqu̕ una nueva vida. Pero lo que encuentra es un lugar lleno de conspiraciones y secretos donde le espera un extrąo regalo de bienvenida: un kit de exorcismo y un siniestro mensaje. Cuanto m̀s profundiza en la ciudad y llega a conocer a sus peculiares habitantes, m̀s parecen surgir antiguas disputas, misterios y sospechas. Y cuando su hija Flo comienza a ver espectros de chicas ardiendo, resulta claro que los fantasmas de Chapel Croft se niegan a descansar en paz. Pero descubrir la verdad puede ser letal en un pueblo con un pasado sangriento, donde todos tienen algo que esconder y nadie conf̕a en los extrąos."--From back cover.
"An unconventional vicar moves to a remote corner of the English countryside, only to discover a community haunted by death and disappearances both past and present--and intent on keeping its dark secrets--in this explosive, unsettling thriller from acclaimed author C. J. Tudor. Welcome to Chapel Croft. Five hundred years ago, eight Protestant martyrs were burned at the stake here. Thirty years ago, two teenage girls disappeared without a trace. And two months ago, the vicar of the local parish killed himself. Reverend Jack Brooks, a single parent with a fourteen-year-old daughter and a heavy conscience, arrives in the village hoping to make a fresh start and find some peace. Instead, Jack finds a town mired in secrecy and a strange welcome package: an old exorcism kit and a note quoting scripture. "But there is nothing covered up that will not be revealed and hidden that will not be known." The more Jack and daughter Flo get acquainted with the town and its strange denizens, the deeper they are drawn into their rifts, mysteries, and suspicions. And when Flo is troubled by strange sightings in the old chapel, it becomes apparent that there are ghosts here that refuse to be laid to rest. But uncovering the truth can be deadly in a village where everyone has something to protect, everyone has links with the village's bloody past, and no one trusts an outsider"--!c Provided by publisher.
