From the bestselling Psychic Surveys series comes a full-length, standalone novel featuring one of its most treasured, formidable, and mysterious characters – Jed.
As soon as Ava Kent spots Jed in her local rescue centre, she knows, just as much as he does, they are perfect for each other. It’s love at first sight, and despite her husband’s misgivings, she offers him a home.
Not much is known of Jed, other than he is a stray picked up from the streets of Eastbourne, but he soon proves himself a loyal and loving companion – in fact, he’s something of a lifesaver. When Ava suffers the traumatic birth of her first child alone at home, it’s Jed that somehow escapes the house to find help.
Ava, though, is plunged into depression. She feels lonely and vulnerable as a new mother, an outcast. It’s as though a darkness has attached itself to her, when previously life was blessed. And it won’t let go.
She’s surrendering to it, bit by bit, almost willingly.
As loving and as loyal as Jed is, he’s just a dog.
Can he save again, someone who doesn’t want to save herself?

The story opens with a married couple looking for a puppy at a rescue centre.
Ava is pregnant and wants the baby and puppy to grow up together.
That plan was scuttled as soon as Ava sees Jed, a magnificently large black Labrador.
Definitely not a puppy, but I would have chosen him too.
A new house, a new dog, and a new baby. And all possible disasters just waiting to happen.
When the baby decides to arrive early, Ava is alone with only Jed for company. This is where the story changes.
At first, a positive change, swiftly followed by darker, more sinister ones.
A nightmare made real…
