The locals want her to believe that these incidents are echoes of the McBrides’ dark past. Zoe is convinced the danger is closer at hand and all too real—but can she uncover the truth before she is silenced?

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Creepy, clever, atmospheric, a fabulous Gothic thriller.” Kate Mosse, New York Times bestselling author
“As Merritt reveals the truth about both Zoe and Ailsa, she raises as many questions as she answers, resulting in a deliciously gothic, haunting story that balances a page-turning pace with lush descriptions of the wild coastal scenery.” Booklist
“A woman seeking solitude finds much more than she bargained for—maybe even a ghost or two—on a windswept Scottish island…Zoe’s flirtation with a much younger schoolteacher named Edward is refreshing, realistic, and very sexy. Merritt certainly knows how to build suspense.” Kirkus Reviews
