Jake Whyte lives alone on a small British island with only her dog and a flock of sheep for company. But there someone—or something—else in the forest around her. Something that has been picking off her sheep one by one. From the author of After the Fire, A Still Small Voice, comes a terrifying new novel that is far from ordinary. “A dark, powerfully disturbing and beautifully observed story . . . A technical tour de force, almost Nabokovian in its structural intricacy . . . A tremendous achievement. I can’t wait for the next one.” —William Boyd.
