A reissue of award-winning horror author Adam Nevill's first novel, perfect for fans of Stephen King and M. R. James

Few believed Professor Coldwell could commune with spirits. But in Scotland's oldest university town something has emerged from the shadows and is stalking the streets. Now, the young are being haunted by night terrors and those who are inflicted are disappearing. This is certainly not a place for outsiders, especially at night. So what chance do a rootless musician and burned-out explorer have of surviving an entanglement with a ruthless, supernatural evil and the secretive cult that serves it? This chilling occult thriller is both an homage to the great age of British ghost stories and a pacy modern tale of diabolism and witchcraft.

From the half-glimpsed manifestations that haunt the entire book to the pure visceral horror of the climax, from the understated menace that lurks under passages of dialogue to the lyrical terror we experience elsewhere, Nevill the novelist displays an impressive range of skills and effects -- Ramsey Campbell Incredibly accomplished and with a really neat and original monster at the heart of the story. It's a feast worth savouring * Shivers *
