Something is astir in Highgate Cemetery. The dead want justice and so do the living.

January 1870: Isabelle Hart has a secret. It lies buried in Highgate Cemetery, beside the statue of the sleeping angel. The enigmatic medium, Madeleine Fox, seems to offer Isabelle hope, but is it all a terrible lie?

March 1970: Strange happenings of a sinister nature are reported at Highgate Cemetery. Who or what is lurking amongst the gravestones? A teenager discovers an obsession that will consume him for the rest of his life.

July, present day: Lauren reluctantly participates in a séance only to discover that someone is trying to contact her from beyond the grave.

Tom doesn't believe that his father's death was an accident. He is determined to find his father's killer.

As Lauren uncovers Isabelle's story and Tom chases his father's murderer, everything points towards the sleeping angel, a Victorian statue in Highgate Cemetery. Lauren and Tom must discover the truth before the killer strikes again.

The Sleeping Angel is a gripping time-slip mystery thriller that cleverly interweaves the Victorian period and the present day.
