A witch is burnt alive. A priest cuts his throat. A soldier is hung from a tree. A terrible debt must be paid.
Lorne’s personal demons need to be tamed if he’s ever going to have a normal life. When he is offered the job of security guard at an old rectory in the Lyn Valley, he takes it. The house he’s guarding has other ideas. It’s already occupied.
As the rain falls, the waters rise and old graves move. It’s time for the witch to demand her reparations from the villagers who inherited her curse. Lorne, Ella, Willow, and Heather must find a way to balance the scales before more lives are lost.
Can they survive the haunting misery of the old bones? Can they save each other from the beckoning darkness? Can Lorne find a way to pay his debt to the dead?
And then there is the rain. Always the rain.
As mysteries go this one doesn’t look too bad. At least on the surface.
Lorne’s obligations to a department within military intelligence are called in when Ms Pilar Sanchez turns up with her men-in-black.
She leaves behind a box full of photos and secrets. He’s tasked with clearing out any mystical or esoteric objects in the cottage of a dead artist who lived nearby.
The cottage is full of paintings and statues of a figure that is ill defined and yet hauntingly beautiful. A creature of dreams.
Those dreams lead Lorne and Heather to uncover an entrance to an ancient mine working.
Within the darkness they find a woman, they find a cage, and they uncover a terrible secret.
Freeing the suffering creature, Lorne does the one thing he vowed never to do. He unleashes hell on the innocent.
It’s not just them that pay the price this time. The question is how high will the final cost be for the team?
Séances aren’t something Lorne’s ever considered worthwhile, for obvious reasons, the dead talk to him all too often. He doesn’t need candles and incense to make it happen.
When he’s called in to help the new owners of an old hotel on an isolated clifftop, he thinks he just needs to find out if the place is haunted. When he arrives, he discovers the ghosts aren’t the problem.
The new owners are being used by an Organised Crime Gang. The leader of which believes he can use a séance to uncover a pirate’s treasure. When the OCG boss discovers Lorne is far more powerful than the psychic they kidnapped in London, he believes he can bend Lorne to his will.
For once, Lorne needs to protect himself and his spirit companion before it’s too late. Without Ella’s wisdom for the first time, with the Department of Paranormal Investigations breathing their icy breath down his back, he’s on his own in the fight.
Or is he?
