Laura and Owen buy a secluded cottage on the edge of the Peak District. Old mines riddle the hills surrounding their new home and soon after moving in, Laura starts to hear faint snatches of birdsong. Her husband, wrapped up in his new job, is rarely around.
Nervous and alone, Laura fears she's developing tinnitus. Her doctor can find nothing wrong. Then an archaeological dig on a neighbouring hill unearths some disturbing finds...and Laura's life starts to become terrifying.

"Chris Simms has never shown any reluctance to chill the blood of the reader." (Good Book Guide)
"After many years of reviewing...it's not often my jaded nerves get actually, physically jangled." (Morning Star)
Well it's 5·45am and I have been unable to sleep. This book is utterly captivating so captivating I've been listening to it all night!
I loved all of it, a true "horror story"
The narration brought the story to life, and varied in accents and tones to add authenticity.
I did listen to this book all evening and throughout the night.
A rose amongst thorns- one of the best books I've read in years!
"Wish it was scarrier sooner."
The story was a little slow to build up. But when it FINALLY did it was actually pretty creepy and sad.
I am a very impatient reader so this story was a little slow for me.
The narration was right on pace with this one.
