Following the hypnosis of a violently disturbed psychiatric patient, Ruby Dean, an unholy dark force was unleashed on the medical staff who tried to help her. Now only one of the original team remains - Ward Sister, Becky. Despite her fiancé, D.I. Ross, being unconscious and many of her colleagues either dead or critically ill, Becky is determined to rescue Ruby's 12-year-old daughter from a similar fate to that of her mother.
But no one asking questions in the desolate mining village Ruby descends from ever comes to a good end. And as the diabolical history of the area is gradually revealed, it seems the evil invoked is now both real and contagious.
Don't turn the lights out yet!

If you enjoy psychological horror, this book really fits the bill. The premise and plotting is superb and really chilling. The writing is what needs work. S.E. England would benefit greatly from a better editor.
This is book 2. You need to read Father of Lies first. If you enjoy dark occult horror novels and you can deal with difficult subject matter, I would highly recommend this series.
This series takes place in a small English village and surrounding areas. It follows a mentally ill woman who has been ritually abused by satanists and is in a psychiatric unit. The nurse and doctor who care for her investigate her town and what is happening their and find many satanic forces, including people in high standing and in leadership positions.
Who can they trust?
Now a preteen young girl is in danger of being sacrificed in a ritual on her upcoming birthday and the small group of healthcare workers and detectives will try and put a stop to all this abuse.
The narrator does a good job at creating different voices for the characters and reading this story. She reads pretty quickly, sometimes I have to speed up a narrator because they read to slow for me, but this narrator reads at a perfect speed for me.
The final book just came out and will be on audio in January from what I have heard. I really liked both these books and I highly recommend them.
the narrator is really great ! the story was also more intriguing and built nicely from the first book in the trilogy. can't wait to start the next book!
"Perfect Horror Series!"
I pre-ordered this second book from the series as soon as I finished the first 'Father of Lies' and haven't been disappointed!
Terrifying from the get go it was as much a hook as the first book in the series for me.
My idea of a true horror story is one in which I can believe. I am a believer of this type of occult, bump in the night frightmare and have devoured both first and second acts and cannot wait to see what the third brings.
Excellent story, well read. BOOM!
"A good second installment "
I really enjoyed this second book in the trilogy. It has moments of real discomfort and makes you think about what might be going on out there. It skilfully rides a fine line between fact and fantasy.
Meire reads well although she pronounces the odd, commonly used word in a strange way, which pulled me out of the story each time. Otherwise though, a good performance.
I couldn't stop listening. Very scary. Can't wait to read the next book in the trilogy.
