Footsteps. Someone wearing trainers like his own, walking in the dusk close behind him. Only, if Daniel looked round there would be no one there. The old fear gripped him and he clenched his hands. The echo was back.
Footsteps in the dusk.
Pale hounds howling through the night.
Hollow-eyed children pleading for his help.
And, most sinister of all, the return of an old friend, grown more powerful than ever.
Daniel’s life is falling apart; then Cora, his beautiful step-sister, disappears. He’ll give anything to get her back… but will he have the courage to face his own demons?
