Long-buried secrets go hand in hand with modern-day murder in this
second thriller featuring attorney Thóra Gudmundsdóttir from Iceland's

When the body of a young woman—badly

health resort in a renovated farmhouse, lawyer and single mother of two
Thóra Gudmundsdóttir is called upon to represent the chief suspect, the
resort's owner. But upon her arrival she encounters more than a fresh

region of Snæfellsnes on Iceland's west coast, is haunted. At first
Thóra dismisses the claims as nothing more than myth and superstition,
but even she can't explain the bizarre occurrences she witnesses in her
search for answers.
As Thóra digs deeper into the farm's past,

history, and her once-solid view of reality begins to waver. Are the
hauntings real, or just a case of folklore gone wild? And, more
important, does the farm's eerie past have something to do with the
murder? When another body is discovered—looking very much like the
first—Thóra is forced to put aside her doubts and confront the horrors
of the present before a twisted killer strikes again.
