Back cover copy

People are falling from the rooftops of Ghent. But did they throw themselves off - or did somebody push them?

Veerle has seen enough death to last a lifetime. But death isn't finished with Veerle just yet.

When people start to die in her new home town, some put it down to a spate of suicides. Some blame the legendary Demons of Ghent. Only Veerle suspects that soemthing - somebody - has followed her to wreak his vengeance.

But she watched the hunter die, didn't she?


'Grant has established herself as a major talent . . . this menacing story of stalking and murder simply confirms that' Daily Mail

'For something so chilling, it is terrifc entertainment' Sunday Times
