Sometimes the past is best left buried...
'The greatest trick the devil ever played was convincing the world that he did not exist.' - Baudelaire.
Twelve years after fighting in Mesopotamia in the Great War, Harry Ward returns to the land where he lost his faith, his mind and almost his life. Haunted by bloody visions of bayonets, shrapnel and shells, he takes up the offer of a simple job, working as a photographer on an archaeological dig outside of Mosul.
As the dig progresses, Ward begins to realise that what they have uncovered is no ordinary temple; it holds a terrible secret. Now flashbacks are the least of his problems ... and he must face a new kind of terror.
A dark historical thriller with a supernatural twist, The Devil's Ark is Agatha Christie's Death on the Nile meets The Exorcist.
