'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.
