Set three years after the events at Edbrook (Haunted), paranormal investigator David Ash is sent to the quiet village of Sleath. What he finds is an idyllic country village with a dark history steeped in evil. The gritty principal protagonist of David Ash is just as much of an anti-hero as he was in ‘ Haunted ’ (1988). His intentionally ‘human’ characteristics add such a solid weight to the story's realism, reinforcing the reader-character connection that was initially established within the first novel.
