The Power Of Darkness (Softcover)
Edith Nesbit

A desirable semi-detached house harbours a dreadful scene. The strains of a funeral mass carry a warning to two young lovers. A bridegroom swears that death itself would not part him from his intended; another man's wife proves this true. Spirits of long-ago women reach out across the years, whilst a corpse refuses to leave its murderer alone. Waxworks appear so lifelike, it's as if they are about to rise and walk - meanwhile, marble effigies in a village church are rumoured to do precisely that. Welcome to that other world which beats a constant undercurrent beneath our own - the world which knows the power of darkness.

Questioning the offended and resentful gentry as well, the pair hears whispers of Satanism, unsavoury pasts, and sinister obsessions. Before long, an attempt is made to silence their enquiries; Tobias, injured but no less determined, realises he must be close to the truth if someone wants him dead. With friends and colleagues either unable or unwilling to help, Tobias is forced to confront his own demons, and ask for help from the last person on earth he wants to meet again...
