A spate of suicides—and stories of angel sightings—lead a detective into the dark underbelly of an isolated English village . . . Samantha Jaynes ended her life in a cold lake. Now Rosie Trimble has done the same. Both claimed they had seen an angel. And they’re not the only ones. The series of teenage suicides is rattling the rural community of Kirkdale in England’s Lake District; is it collective hallucination—or is something more sinister leading these young girls to their deaths? That’s a question for Dr Alex Ripley, the so-called Miracle Detective. Brought in to help the police, she finds a community rooted in fear and suspicion, bound by their strange faith, unwilling to help, unable to forgive. The people of Kirkdale have buried their dark past before, and they’re not about to let Alex Ripley dig it up again . . .
