Reverend Jack Brooks is looking for a fresh start. Chapel Croft appears the perfect place, but the village has a dark and dangerous history - and the ghosts of its past refuse to stay buried. Decades ago, two girls disappeared. And just months ago, the last vicar committed suicide - but not before leaving a message for Jack. Jack must uncover the truth, or risk sacrificing the village to the evils that lie within. But the truth is hard to find, when everyone has something to hide. And as long buried secrets of Jack's own resurface, faith alone will not save them . . .
