About the Book

On leaving the brash world of showbiz, Digby Lund discovers a tranquil retreat in the countryside of Northern Spain, to pursue his passion for painting. His new villa, situated on the perimeter of a wind farm, has everything he could wish for. Despite hostility and protestations from his trophy wife Cecilia, a model who loathes his new home, finds his one and only newly acquired friend Frank a retired electrical engineer dull and is determined to seek a more glitzy location, Digby remains determined to pursue his new lifestyle even in the face of her antagonism. But when the wind farm takes on a life of its own and Digby discovers that he has been duped into buying the land, the rural tranquility is abruptly shattered by the horrors of a biological experiment dating back to the Spanish Civil War. Digby, Cecilia his wife, Frank his friend, and Juan a Spanish count are trapped as the past rises up from the Spanish soil to terrorise the four occupants of the villa.
