The Burning Girls

£8.99

Reverend Jack Brooks and daughter Flo are looking for a fresh start and Chapel Croft appears the perfect place. But this village has a dark and dangerous history – and the ghosts of its past refuse to stay buried. 500 years ago, eight Protestant martyrs were burnt at the stake. 30 years ago, two girls disappeared without a trace. And two 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.

Welcome to Chapel Croft.

For Rev Jack Brooks and teenage daughter Flo it’s a fresh start. New job, new home. But in a close-knit community old superstitions and a mistrust of outsiders mean treading carefully.

Yet right away Jack has more frightening concerns.

Why did no one say the last vicar killed himself? Why is Flo plagued by visions of burning girls? And who is sending them threatening messages?

Old ghosts with scores to settle can never rest. And Jack is standing in their way . . .
