Weird mystery novel with supernatural elements. Idris Breakspear arrives at Ormsby-on-Sea, ancestral home of the Ravengars, in search of a clue to the fate of his father, who was accused of a murder he didn't commit, sprung from prison by his friend Noel Rochefort, and vanished at sea fifteen years previous. Idris' only lead is a coded runic message on a Viking ring, stolen from his mother on the day of his father's disappearance; a message that tells of a rich treasure in a Viking tomb at Ormsby. Idris discovers the tomb, but it holds only a skeleton, the skull of which bears a modern wound that sets Idris on the path of uncovering the dark secrets of his past and of the Ravengars of Ravenhall.
