When a man dies from what appears to be a random snake bite in a quiet country village, the hospital seeks the expertise of wildlife vet Clara Benning. But the post mortem reveals this was no freak accident. Clara finds herself drawn into the hunt for a brutally inventive killer, putting herself in grave danger as she unravels links to a barbaric ancient ritual, an abandoned house and a 50-year-old, unspeakable tragedy. For someone the truth must remain buried in the past, even if they have to kill to keep it there.

Reviews

"Bolton has elevated herself to the High Priestess of English Rural Gothic. If she carries on like this she will have worshippers in their millions" * The Times * "This book writhes and glides and slithers its way into the readers psyche...[Bolton] knows precisely how to ratchet up the tension and tell a cracking story" * Guardian * "A tour de force - totally grips from beginning to end" -- JENNI MURRAY "An original and atmospheric chiller" * Daily Mail * "Assured and original. Sacrifice was good: Awakening is even better" -- SIMON BECKETT

A seemingly sleepy little village begins to show signs of strange and unsuspected things when snakes begin to appear in unprecedented numbers inside peoples houses and then a man dies from a snake bite buut there is something strange about that too. A reclusive wildlife vet finds herself being prised out of her comfort zone as she is forced to confront her fears of people as she attempts to find out whats going on before someone else dies. Really very compelling with a fresh voice and a strong if unusual main character and vivid details.
