Summary

When war ends, terror begins. 
A fist fight that reverberates down the years. A family devastated by war. A flight from despair. 
John Andrews leaves industrial Newcastle for a remote village in post-war Cornwall. A village of reclusive inhabitants, where the birds don't sing. A village haunted by its past that intrudes upon the present. 
He falls in love, but it is overshadowed by a series of increasingly terrifying events. He encounters members of a tragic family, sees his maternal grandfather, meets his older brother; not so remarkable, perhaps, except that all are dead. 
Events spiral out of control and John is forced to battle to save what remains of his family, his first love, his very sanity. Not to mention his life. 
The Village of Lost Souls is hungry to claim more…
