'The devil walks . . . But the devil can make no headway if he has no help. We must invite him in . . .'
Raised in secrecy by a mother everyone thinks has gone mad, Daniel's only link to his past is the intricately built model of the family home - High Gates. The dolls' house is perfect in every detail.
As Daniel is reunited with the last remaining member of his family - his 'uncle' Severin, who bears an uncanny resemblance to a sinister wooden doll he has found hidden in the house, he begins to suspect that this vicious, haunted puppet of a figure has a chilling influence, bringing cruelty and spite in its wake.
Now Daniel's very life is at risk as his uncle is determined to get his hands on the figure . . .
The menace builds throughout in this deliciously creepy Gothic tale.
