Publisher's Summary

March 1928. Freddie Smith is on a motoring holiday in the mountains of south west France. He is caught in a violent storm and his car crashes. He is forced to seek shelter in a boarding house in the nearby village of Axat. There he meets another guest in the tiny hotel, a pale and beautiful young woman called Marie. As the storm rages outside, she explains how the region was ripped apart by wars of religion in the 14th century. She tells how, one terrible night in March 1328, all the inhabitants of Axat were forced to flee from the soldiers into the mountains. The villagers took refuge in a cave, but when the fighting was over, no one came back. Their bodies were never found. Axat itself became a ghost town. When Freddie wakes the following morning, Marie has gone. Worse still, his car will take several days to repair and he has to stay at the boarding house for a few days more. To pass the time, he explores the mountains. Then he realises it is almost 600 years to the day since the villagers disappeared. He decides to go and look for the cave himself. Perhaps, he thinks, he might even find Marie? It is a decision he will live to regret.

    "A slight, rather feeble re-run of her novels"

    I've enjoyed Kate Mosse's long novels and imagined this short piece would break some new ground. Sadly not. Her style in this format seemed rather plodding to me and the storyline was entirely predictable for anyone who knows her novels. The saving grace was the performance of the narrator, who did his best to breath some life into the story.

    "An enjoyable read for a long car journey"

    I listened two this in two sessions while driving to and from a friend's house for New Year. I normally get longer books but with a voucher and 30-40% discount! I thought this was a reasonable price (far too expensive to buy at standard credit price though as it's only 90 min or so).

    The story itself was highly enjoyable, if a little predictable (for me at least). It didn't detract from the enjoyment though and definitely made my solitary drive much more enjoyable!
