From the cover: “On the moors above Haverston there is a mysterious beast at large, savagely attacking livestock on the surrounding farms and giving rise to rumours and fears. The morale of the close-knit Haverston community is already at a low ebb as the local mill faces closure, and the spectre of unemployment becomes first a growing menace, and then a terrible reality, affecting every family in the district. This tensely exciting novel by a remarkable young writer does not just grip from first page to last: it also clothes the remote idea most of us have about unemployment in reality and will bring home to every reader the tragedy which haunts our times.”
