In a dystopian future the dead don't always die - they are the Walkin', but there are those who will not suffer the wicked to live . . .
Seven years after Thomas returned as a Walkin', the McDermott family are looking for a new life and Thomas has set his heart on starting a farmstead near the remote outpost of Fort Wilson.
But the teachings of J.S. Barkley are not so easily forsaken - there are those who would see the sinners dead, and they are slowly closing in.
Just as gripping and compelling as Your Brother's Blood . . . very much worth your time - A Fantastical Librarian
Fort Wilson . . . has that foreboding feeling of say the house from Amytiville Horror and like the town of Barkley in the first book, it becomes a character - Sleepless Musings
Haunting, elegiac, evocative and human - Christopher Brookmyre
