A detective investigates the disappearance of a beautiful Welsh teenager in this “deeply satisfying” mystery by the author of the Brother Cadfael series (Publishers Weekly). Annet Beck is hauntingly beautiful, which worries her parents so much that they guard her as closely as a prisoner . . . until the rainy Thursday in October when she disappears. Annet is last seen vanishing over the crest of the eerie Hallowmount, a hill said to be the abode of witches. Five days later, she mysteriously reappears, claiming that she was only gone for two hours. Enchanted by her beauty, Annet’s parents’ lodger Tom Kenyon is determined to find the explanation for her disappearance: Could it be deceit, amnesia, or witchcraft?
