Summary
'I'm from this village. I've lived here all my life . . .' His voice trailed off. 'All your life, you say. But, ' I pointed out, 'the warden here doesn't know you at all, and he knows everyone in this village and hereabouts.' 'Well, I don't know him, ' the boy said, shaking his head wildly. 'I don't know anything or anyone any more.' On a bitterly cold night in 1900, a young boy disappears from the forest near the quiet village of Litton Cheney. He is never found, but the man he was with claims he was snatched by angels. Forty years later, mysterious lights are spotted above Litton Cheney, and Corporal Jack Carmody is sent to investigate. The villagers suspect German bombers overhead, but Carmody works for a secret government department that delves into the strange, the supernatural and the unexplained, and knows there's something far more intriguing going on. And when a terrified boy appears in the graveyard, convinced it's the year 1900, it's up to Carmody and his boss - the charismatic Captain Holloway - to uncover the truth
