A captivating modern gothic horror novel about grief, self-discovery, and the legacy of our choices set against the captivating and sumptuous backdrop of Northern Spain.
A woman has vanished on the Camino de Santiago, the ancient five-hundred-mile pilgrimage that crosses northern Spain. Daniel, an Irish expat, walks the lonely trail carrying his wife Petra’s ashes, along with the damning secret of how she really died.
When he teams up with vibrant California girl Ginny, she seems like the perfect antidote for his grieving heart. But a nightmare figure begins to stalk them, and Daniel’s mind starts to unravel as they are pursued by things he cannot explain.
Unexpected twists and turns echo the path of the ancient trail they walk upon. The lines begin to blur between reality and madness, between truth and the lies we tell ourselves.

Petra’s Ghost by C.S O’Cinneide is released on 13th October 2020 from Titan Books.
