Synopsis







From internationally bestselling, acclaimed author Melinda

Salisbury comes a darkly seductive story of murder, betrayal,

love, and family secrets in a small town in the Scottish Highlands.



Here are the rules of living with a murderer.





One: Do not draw attention to yourself. Of course, when you

live with a murderer, this is impossible. Even the subtlest of

spectres is bound to be noticed.





Which leads to the next rule.





Two: If you can't be invisible, be useful.





Everyone in this quiet lakeside community knows that Alva's father

killed her mother, all those years ago. There wasn't enough

proof to arrest him, though, and with no other family, Alva's been

forced to live with her mother's murderer, doing her best to survive

until she can earn enough money to run away.





One of her chores is to monitor water levels in the loch-a task

her father takes very seriously. Their family has been the guardian

of the loch for generations. It's a cold, lonely task, and a

few times, Alva can swear she feels someone watching her.





But the more Alva investigates, the more she realizes that the

truth can be more monstrous than lies, and that you can never escape

your past . . .











Gripping literary horror/thriller with a topical ecological edge





Unsettling, sharply beautiful and thought-provoking





Melinda Salisbury's The Sin Eater's Daughter was the
