When another Halloween brings an additional death, a young police officer on the Isle of Man suspects they are connected to dark secrets in her own past.

When Claire Cooper was eight years old her mother mysteriously vanished during Hop-tu-naa, Halloween on the Isle of Man. At fourteen, Claire is still struggling to come to terms with her disappearance when she’s befriended by a group of five teenagers who mark every Halloween by performing dares. But Claire’s arrival begins to alter the group’s dynamic until one year a prank goes terribly wrong, changing all their futures and tearing the friends apart.

Six years later, one of the friends is killed on Halloween in an apparent accident. But Claire, now a police officer, has her doubts. Is a single footprint found near the body a deliberate taunt? As another Halloween dawns, bringing with it another death and another footprint, Claire becomes convinced that somebody is seeking vengeance. But who? And which of the friends might be next? If she is going to stop a killer and unlock the dark secrets of her past, Claire must confront her deepest fears—before it’s too late.

Chris Ewan, author of the stand-alone thrillers Safe House and Dead Line, returns to the Isle of Man with a thriller that will keep you up all night.

Quotes & Awards

  • “A truly compelling piece of work. [Ewan] utilizes the more sinister aspects of Manx folklore, forging from it a truly atmospheric thriller that is impossible to put down. If Ewan chooses never to go back to his lighter Good Thief’s Guide series and continues to produce novels like Dark Tides, readers will have little cause to complain.”

    Daily Express (London)

  • “The novel’s formula is clever and well executed and Ewan’s portrayal of the island duly atmospheric.”

    Times (London)

  • “ The remote island setting—‘eighty thousand people, clinging to a rock thirty-two miles long by fourteen miles wide in the middle of the Irish Sea’—gives it a touch of The Wicker Man…Ewan skilfully avoids potential mantraps of melodrama or gore to deliver a truly chilling and thoroughly enjoyable read.”

    Observer (London)

  • “A dark and tragic tale, sinister and foreboding.”

    RT Book Reviews (4 stars)

  • “An engrossing story of revenge, remorse, and one young woman’s ongoing search for the truth.”

    Library Journal

  • “In a chilling page-turner that spans twenty years, Ewan explores the darker side of Manx folklore.”


  • “Solid, brooding suspense with a whodunit chaser.”

    Kirkus Reviews
