The British Midlands. Inhabitants call it the “Black
Country”—and with good reason. Bad things happen there.
When three members of a prominent family disappear from the
Midlands—and a human eyeball is discovered in a bird’s
nest—Scotland Yard’s Murder Squad is called in. But
Inspector Walter Day and Sergeant Nevil Hammersmith have
stepped into something much more bizarre and complicated
Superstitions abound in the intertwined histories of the
villagers, including a local legend about a monster some
claim to have seen. In addition, a mysterious epidemic is
killing off the inhabitants, and the village itself is
sinking into the coal mines below. Day and Hammersmith soon
realize that they, too, are in over their heads. And the
more they investigate, the more they fear that they may
never be allowed to leave.
