Publisher's Summary

In the mystical Snæfellsnes region on Iceland's west coast - at a New Age health resort in a renovated farmhouse - the body of a young woman is discovered, savagely beaten, with pins inserted into her feet. Thóra Gudmundsdóttir, lawyer and single mother of two, has been retained to represent the resort's owner and prime suspect. But a fresh corpse is not the only abomination Thóra encounters here - for local legend says this place is haunted, and a bizarre series of inexplicable occurrences soon suggests it is so. As Thóra digs deeply into the farm's past, she unearths a shocking history of evil and depravity, and her once-solid view of reality begins to waver. But a second murder, shockingly similar to the first, pulls Thóra back to earth by making two inescapable truths abundantly clear: the killer she seeks is very real and is not finished yet.

Critic Reviews

"As Thóra pursues an array of suspects and clues, Sigurdardóttir keeps readers guessing whodunit." ( Publishers Weekly)

The story is Ok it could interesting if narrated by someone else

The narrator is terrible, her attempts to narrate the male characters is unbearable. I will never get an audiobook narrated by this woman

Ridiculously Good

This author is so talented. This is the third book of hers that I’ve purchased and absolutely loved. An atmospheric yet realistic and utterly believable ghost story. Interesting characters who are all quite well developed, sense of place is established and detailed. This author brings you into her stories in a human and relevant way. There’s no red herrings or other tricks to fill paper, just good solid storytelling. Totally recommend and absolutely worth a credit.
Yes yes yes...

Good story hampered by awful narration

The story itself is interesting and (mostly) well told. Wiley's narration, particular characters with accents and male characters, is awful. At times, characters read much older than they are or are comically tragic. Sigurdardottir is one of Iceland's most well known writers, and deserves better narration than this.
