Contemporary gothic from the bestselling author of Labyrinth, Sepulchre flits between nineteenth-century and twenty-first-century France and revolves around a young academic researching a biography of Debussy and delving into her own mysterious origins.
Finding passing love of her own, Meredith Marin uncovers a tale of ancient demons, possession, tragic love affairs and modern-day murder, centred on a ruined Visigoth sepulchre and intriguingly prefigured in a unique set of tarot cards.
Hauntingly read by the incomparable Lorelei King, Sepulchre is certain to tantalise and haunt you, for the accompanying music as much as for the tireless prose.
