The doorstep was black, shiny as glass. Through the layer of dead leaves, I found some symbols, and in English: WHERE –SILON DWELLS.

Spooky, sinister, enthralling, compelling – this astonishing debut novel from Christine Morton-Shaw will keep readers guessing until the final page.

Jess White, age 14, has been uprooted from her home and taken to live on a remote yet populated island, at the whim of her parents – Mum is an artist; Dad a photographer. While she is bemoaning her new (lack of) life to her best friend via a computer chatroom, they are interrupted by a third party – although only Jess is aware of the presence that calls itself ‘V’.

This is the start of a most extraordinary and creepy mystery as Jess finds herself caught up in a cycle of deadly occurences that have apparently happened before and seem intent on being re-enacted through her and her family. Unable to ignore or stop the process of events, Jess (and the reader) unravel the clues, guided only by the enigmatic Epsilon – who may or may not be real/mortal/"Good".
