Product description

Deep in the heart of the Moiraean Mountains lies the town of Opum Oppidulum – home to the freezing Lake Beluarum and it’s fabled monster. An inescapable asylum stands in the centre of the lake, enclosed by the sheer cliffs of Drop Rock island. When Ambrose Grammaticus – a famous inventor and master engineer – viciously attacks his own son, Rex, he is hauled away to the island and imprisoned there. Rex knows his evil stepmother, Acantha, is behind his father’s terrible deed, but how can he prove it? Only the asylum holds the answers…

From the bestselling author of The Black Book of Secrets comes this latest savage story of treachery, lunacy, greed, revenge and sheer wickedness.
