Awakening – S J Bolton

“How did it all begin?  I suppose it would be the day I rescued a new-born baby from a poisonous snake, heard the news of my mother’s death and encountered my first ghost…”

Veterinary surgeon Clara Benning is young and intelligent, but practically a recluse.  Disfigured by a childhood accident, she lives alone and shies away from human contact wherever possible.  But when a man dies, following a supposed snake bite, Clara learns that the victim’s post mortem shows a higher concentration of venom than could ever be found in a single snake.

Assisted by her softly spoken neighbour and an eccentric reptile expert, Clara unravels sinister links to a barbaric ancient ritual, an abandoned house and a fifty year old tragedy that left the survivors fiercely secretive.  Then the village’s inventive attacker strikes again, and Clara’s own solitary existence is brutally invaded.

For someone the truth must remain buried in the past… even if they have to kill to keep it there.

Collectors Notes

  • Signed, lined and dated copies of this novel fetch around £70, as they’re possibly the hardest to come by out of all of S J Bolton’s books.  So why are we selling this copy so cheap?  Sadly, this book has suffered some printing, or transport, damage to the back cover and the back of the dust jacket.  So, while it’s a new and unread book that looks in very fine condition from every aspect but the back, we’ve priced it accordingly.  And don’t forget, if you buy it and are unhappy with it for any reason at all, send it back and we’ll give you a full refund, no questions asked.  (If you want any more info, please ’phone.)
  • This book comes with an unsigned brochure, flyer & bookmark from ‘The Thrill of the Chase’ event held at the Reading Festival of Crime Writing on 13 September 2009.
