"Grief and healing, violence and peace, sanctity and evil: Holy
Island was ever a place of contrasts. The spirit of ancient saints
hovers near, but contemporary corruption threatens Aidan and all he
holds dear... will enchant readers of classic British mysteries."
-- Donna Fletcher Crow, author of A Very Private Grave
"A powerfully evoked sense of place and unfolding mystery is woven into a contemporary tale of tragedy turned sinister, on the ancient island of saints." -- C. F. Dunn, author of Mortal Fire
