Sian, troubled by dark dreams and seeking distraction, joins an archaeological dig at Whitby. The abbey's one hundred and ninety-nine steps link the twenty-first century with the ruins of the past and Sian is swept into a mystery involving a long-hidden murder, a fragile manuscript in a bottle and a cast of most peculiar characters. Equal parts historical thriller, romance and ghost story, this is an ingenious literary page-turner and is completely unforgettable. THIS EDITION ALSO FEATURES MICHEL FABER'S NOVELLA THE COURAGE CONSORT

Part historical thriller, part gothic romance, part ghost story, it is further confirmation that its author is a singular talent with a unique perception of the universe. * * Sunday Herald * * This is a man who could give Conrad a run at writing the perfect sentence. * * Guardian * * Engrossing . . . the writing is spare and evocative and Sian's slow return to health is powerfully wrought. * * The Times * * With impressive subtlety and economy, Faber raises questions about . . . the way in which the past haunts the present and the invisible undercurrents lying beneath human relations. * * Evening Standard * * Visits the strangest of places and makes them real. * * Scotsman * *
