Near the dying English seaside town of Ilmarsh, local police detective Alec Nichols discovers sixteen horses’ heads on a farm, each buried with a single eye facing the low winter sun.

In the dark days that follow, the town slips into panic and paranoia. Everything is not as it seems. Anyone could be a suspect.

And as Cooper finds herself unable to leave town, Alec is stalked by an unseen threat. The two investigators race to uncover the truth behind these frightening and insidious mysteries – no matter the cost. Sixteen Horses is the debut literary thriller from an extraordinary new talent, Greg Buchanan.
