    Taking a job in the studio of an Edinburgh taxidermist probably isn't Walt's wisest decision. Suffering from combat stress and struggling to outrun the demons from his past, he now finds himself confronted by the undead on a daily basis. His enigmatic boss, Alys, and her sister, Mouse, have their own uneasy relationship with the past. Someone doesn't want to let them go. Can Walt save Mouse's eight-year-old son, William, from becoming the next victim? And can he save himself? Deliciously disturbing, this psychological thriller peels back the skin of one modern family to reveal the wounds no one wants to see. It deals with the effects of trauma and how facing up to vulnerability is sometimes the only way to let go of the past.
