Well, living just down the road from the setting of this book clearly I was obliged to read it. Hurley’s debut novel, The Loney, was chilling and often unsettling reading and I wondered whether his second novel would have the same power. Oh yes! It certainly did, if not more so. A small and isolated farming community still has room in their rituals and belief systems for Old Nick. Will he outwit them or can they keep him at bay?
