In its frosted chambers, everyone is alone

An abducted psychic reads the cards to preserve her sanity. In another part of the country, struggling to keep his family from disintegration and to deflect the lethal attentions of an East End gang, Luke is forced to flee his home.

In the long hot summer of 1976, these two strangers are connected in a way neither of them understands. Yet, as mounting obsession and the pursuit of violent revenge send events spiralling out of control, it becomes clear that their lives depend on a mutually-powered drive to prevail.

The cards offer both a line of communication and a tantalising hint at salvation: Luke and Paige need to rely not only on their wits but on symbiotic faith and vision. Can the intangible ever be strong enough to deliver them - and those closest to them - from the forces of destruction?

LS from Amazon. Good read. Very enjoyable especially the way the different strands of the story wind round each other. Look forward to book three.

North Londoner from Amazon. A page-turner that keeps you guessing! This is a great read. The narrative carries you along so that you feel completely absorbed in its reality. It keeps you guessing and takes you, via many twists and turns, to an exciting climax. Reading it on the tube in London I was transported to South Wales and the heatwave of 1976, and was frequently in danger of being carried past my destination stop - I was so engrossed. Well done Mr Morgan-Jones. I'm greatly looking forward to the next book in the series.

davena&gavin from Amazon. I was greatly looking forward to this, the second book in the Glasswater Quintet and, in fact had put off reading it as I was enjoying the anticipation! I began it on one night - I enjoy reading in bed - and finished it the next! it is such a page-turner and so very enjoyable., The characterisation is up to James Morgan-Jones's usual high standard and the plot, with many twists and turns is thoroughly compelling. And, to top it all, there's a little map at the start, which I feel enhances any book! Can't wait for the next one. Don't keep us waiting too long, please James!

A Martin from Amazon. Thoroughly enjoyable sequel. Great characterisation. Has all the things I'm interested in: weather, nature, the occult, a mystery and what an amazing climax. It was a joy from beginning to end and has an intriguing twist in the finale. I particularly appreciated the breadth of vocubulary at Mr Morgan's command. Recommended.

Ada from Amazon. A great read and I found it as compelling as the first book in the quintet. It's a coming of age story and crime-thriller combined with heart-warming friendships and family bonds. The narrative is both fast-paced and filled with rich detail and descriptions of the different settings involved. Thoroughly recommended.
