Overview

Sixteen-year-old Kate Mansfield and her blind brother Neil live in a manor on the edge of the Brent Prior moors. It is a dreary place populated by the dispirited and the disillusioned, where the young nurture desperate dreams of escape. And Kate is no different. But her plans to run away to the city are crushed one very ordinary morning when the quiet in Brent Prior is shattered by an inexplicable act of violence.

In the wake of the tragedy, Kate's beloved father is stricken by a strange illness, and she and her brother fall under the care of the manor's caretaker and maid.

Then, as if attuned to the melancholy that has stricken Mansfield House, a fog rolls in. Villagers begin to vanish. Lithe fleeting shadows are glimpsed in the mist, and a disfigured man arrives in Brent Prior.

A man who has come back to settle an old score.

A man who calls himself the Master of the Moors.

Editorial Reviews

Cherie Priest
"...the themes are big and the peril is honestly engaging. By and large this is a wonderful specimen of the genre-well worth reading under the covers with a flashlight"
C.S. Pothitt
"Using Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's The Hound of the Baskervilles and Emily Bronte's Wuthering Heights as a starting point, and tales of the Dartmoor beast, which still make it into British newspapers, as inspiration, Burke crafted a moody, thrilling tale set in a foggy, stark land riddled with quicksand and bogs."
Don D'Ammassa
"Burke evokes the creepy atmosphere beautifully and the gory scenes are done with as much taste as is possible under the circumstances. Grady is an interesting protagonist whose adventures should capture the attention of most readers who enjoy a touch of the grotesque. I've enjoyed several of the author's short stories in the past and am happy to say that he is no slouch at novel length either."
Gav ****
"Very atmospheric, great characters, fabulous old fashioned classic Hammer Horror style English gothica at it’s best, and above all else, easily the best new horror novel I’ve had the pleasure of reading in ages."
