When young magazine journalist Ashley Reeves receives an intriguing letter he leaves his London office in the hope of reporting on an unusual species of insect - the Ganges Red.
That evening he arrives on Aries Island and encounters the writer of the letter - Reginald Mather.
At first Mather seems no more than an eccentric collector, happy to live in isolation on the island.
But when Reeves unearths the horrific truth he finds himself thrown headlong into a macabre nightmare that quickly spirals out of control.
His life is in danger . . . and Mather is not his only enemy . . . Both gruesome and compelling, chilling and page-turning, this much-anticipated thriller from Dean Vincent Carter will delight older readers.
