Deep in the English countryside, during one of the hottest years in living memory, a series of violent and seemingly unrelated deaths rocks the tiny village of Blackbriar to its core. The last to die is a gifted ten-year-old named Alice Williams.


Now, years later, an elderly couple enjoying a long summer holiday in the old Williams' place find a girl's necklace in the weeds. They should have left it there.


Doves & Crows is a tale of fear and courage, fidelity and betrayal, and of what happens when the inhabitants of a tiny country backwater find themselves in the grip of a man so evil he can only be the devil himself.
