But now, a dark secret threatens all who venture near. Everyone is in danger, and only Harry Price can help. Reluctantly reunited with his former assistant Sarah Grey, he must unlock the mystery of Imber, and unsurface the secrets someone thought were long buried.

There's nothing like a good ghost story, and this supernatural mystery kept me guessing to the last page. Neil Spring is Agatha Christie meets James Herbert
Stephen Volk
A tense supernatural page-turner, loaded with atmospheric dread. Perfect for those long autumn nights
Masterfully mixing history with a damned fine ghost story, The Lost Village contains echoes of James Herbert at his spectral best. Neil Spring has produced another atmospheric read, and his Sarah Grey is a narrator who's hard to forget
