About the Event

A murder investigation unearths the brutal history of a village where long buried secrets threaten a small community. When psychotherapist Alexis Cosse is found murdered in the playground of the sleepy northern village of Burrowhead, the local police force set out to investigate. It's not long before they uncover a maelstrom of racism, misogyny and homophobia. But there's worse to come.

Shaken by the revelations and beginning to doubt her relationship with her husband Fergus, DI Georgie Strachan soon realises that something very bad is lurking just below the surface. Meanwhile someone - or something - is hiding in the strange, haunted cave beneath the cliffs.

When The Dead Come Calling is a tense, atmospheric thriller which grips to the very last page. It confirms what many of us already knew:

'Helen Sedgwick is one of Scotland's finest contemporary storytellers.' -Claire Askew, author of All the Hidden Truths

'By combining up-to-the-minute themes, well-tuned dialogue and warm and witty details of everyday life with a deep, impressionistic sense of dread, Sedgwick produces a mystery as addictive as it is anxiety-inducing.' -Molly Flatt, author of The Charmed Life of Alex Moore
