The first of two ghost stories set in the town of Totnes in Devon. 14-year-old Will terrifyingly experiences a voice from the past when visiting the remains of Totnes Castle. Gradually he realises that a boy took revenge on the Normans for a brutal atrocity in 1068 when local Saxons were enslaved to build the castle. But the boy suffered terrible consequences and his spirit cannot rest until the knife he used is returned to its rightful place. Will breaks into the castle at night to dig up the knife but then the nightmare begins as he relives his Saxon forebear’s horrific ordeal.
