Description

Sometimes, when there is evil enough, that evil comes to life, and sets up home with you...'He draws her close, envelops her as if with wings. She does not resist him or the kisses over her face and when he tilts her chin up, she lets him, exposing the flesh of her throat. When she goes home that day she will wear the marks of the devil, the clinging smell of oil, the bruising of her neck.' This is a chilling and disturbing novel from the author of Sleeping Dogs and Wilful Blue.
