â€˜The Dead are not alone. There is something in the mist and it talks to them.’
In Dr Bloomâ€™s clinic at a remote spot on the Italian coast, at the end of the 18th century, nothing is ever quite what it seems. Maria is a lonely little girl with no one to play with. She writes letters to her mother from the isolated resort where she is staying. She tells of the pale English aristocrats and the mysterious Russian nobles and their attentive servants.
She tells of intrigue and secrets, and she tells of strange faceless figures that rise from the sea. She writes about the enigmatic Mrs Pond who arrives with her husband and her physician, and who will change everything. What she doesnâ€™t tell her mother is the truth that everyone knows and no one says â€“ that the only people who come here do so to die.
The Dead of Winter is published April 28th 2011 with an RRP of Â£6.99 – however you can pre-order now from Amazon for just Â£5.19!
