Indie filmmaker Kyle Freeman is a man at the end of his tether. He faces bankruptcy and obscurity, until he lands a commission to make an unusual documentary. The Temple of the Last Days was a notorious cult, which reached its bloody endgame in the Arizona desert in 1975. Ever since, the group's rumoured mystical secrets and paranormal experiences have lain concealed behind a history of murder, sexual deviancy and imprisonment. Kyle and his one-man crew film the cult's original bases in London and France -- finally visiting the desert crime scene where the cult self-destructed in a night of ritualistic violence. But when Kyle interviews survivors, uncanny events plague his shoots. Frightening out-of-body experiences and nocturnal visitations follow, along with the discovery of ghastly artefacts. Until Kyle realises, too late, that they've become entangled in the cult's hideous legacy. Praise for Adam Nevill 'This novel grabs from the very first page ...Superb' Guardian 'Lean, compelling, dark, at times frightening' The Herald 'Horrifyingly scary ...Nevill sinuously ramps up the tension' Sunday Times
