Includes Faber's novella The Courage Consort

Sian, troubled by dark dreams and seeking distraction, joins an archaeological dig at Whitby Abbey. The abbey's one hundred and ninety-nine steps link the twenty-first century with the ruins of the past and Sian is swept into a mystery involving a long hidden murder, a fragile manuscript in a bottle and a cast of most peculiar characters. Equal parts historical thriller, romance and ghost story, this ingenious and unforgettable literary page-turner.

This new edition sees The Hundred and Ninety-Nine Steps brought together with its sibling novella, The Courage Consort.
