    Finn's not at all sure about the Salt House. Overlooking Westwater Bay, it brings back all her nightmare fears of drowning, of the ghosts of the dead reaching for her. And Westwater is dangerous. Countless seafarers have drowned here, their ships lost - broken on the vicious Viper Rocks; lured by the wrecker's false lights, summoned by the dark enchantments of cunning men - masters of storms and tides...or so the legends say.
