When Edgar Freemantle moves to the remote island of Duma Key to escape his past, he doesn't expect to find much there.

But Duma has been waiting for him, and something in the view from his window urges him to discover a talent he never knew he had.

Edgar Freemantle begins to paint. And as he paints, the island's secrets begin to stir. Secrets of children lost in the undertow, of a ghost ship riding the distant horizon - and a family's buried past reaching long hands into the present.

This is one of the most haunted character pieces he's ever written. Horrific. Tragic. And absolutely beautiful * Damon Lindelof, co-creator and writer of Lost *
Fresh and frightening and highly recommended * Observer *
King has become such a sophisticated writer that this novel is never less than page-turning . . . A first-class beach-read * Independent on Sunday *
'Another masterpiece' * The Sun *
