What do you do if you’re dead but haven’t ‘moved on’? 

You keep finding yourself back where you died, with very little control over when; sometimes you can be away for days, weeks or even months, and then you’re back.

Barney Lumsden a homeless teen arrives in Oakley Place, situated in the depths of the Buckinghamshire Countryside.But was Oakley Place a perfect idyll and what are the dark secrets that lay buried.

Barney Lumsden unwittingly uncovers more than he could ever imagine, and it also seems that he’s caught up in a Government cover-up going back centuries.
