Adam and Amelia are making a last-ditch effort to save their marriage, by taking a trip up to the Scottish Highlands to stay in an isolated converted church to celebrate their anniversary. No work. No phones. Nobody for miles around. Should make for the perfect romantic getaway, right? Perhaps it would be, but someone is lying and they both have ulterior motives for this trip. They think they’re in control, but Amelia’s winning of this getaway wasn’t coincidence. Someone is watching.
Living in Edinburgh with her younger sister, Izwi, and their grandmother, Ropa has long stopped going to school. To make ends meet she uses the traditional Zimbabwean magic taught to her by her grandmother to provide her ghoststalker services to the local ghosts, billing their families for carrying messages from beyond the grave. One night, she comes across Nicola, a woman unable to move on until she finds her missing boy. But Oliver isn’t the only child who has gone missing and those that returned appear to be transformed with mysterious magic.
