Publisher's Summary

Evynsford was a nearly forgotten hamlet on the coast of the Irish Sea when the troubles began. First the dead ship rolled into the dock, then fog swallowed the community and then the disappearances occurred. One child vanished from her bed before sunrise. Then twin brothers did not return from their chores. As the cries for the local watchmen to do something - anything - grew, so did the number of abducted children. By the time the local watchmen called to Preston for professional constables, there were more children missing than accounted for in the panicked township.

When Inspector Arthur Eldermann arrives in the mist-choked community, not a single child under the age of 13 but older than three remains, and there are no witnesses, no bodies, and no clues as to why. The Inspector, a lapsed clergyman of cold demeanor and sneering wit, has his work cut out for him among the surly and insular townsfolk. His one ray of hope lies in Miss Regina Hollferd, governess of the rural schoolhouse, whose dedication and knowledge may hold the key to the disappearance of so many of her students. Her zeal and diligence begin to touch something in Inspector Eldermann long left to the dark, and he finds himself enthralled and repelled in equal measure by the soft-spoken yet potent woman.

He will need all the help he can get, as things are moving in the mists around Evynsford, and the great wheels of a dark, terrible engine have already been set in motion. Can daring, wit, and rekindled faith find the stolen children and perhaps even forestall the shadow looming ever closer?

A somewhat interesting story utterly destroyed

I wanted to cut my ears off
Do not get any book read by this narrator if you don’t want to puke
I won’t continue this series unless someone else takes over
