In the village of Waterslain in Norfolk, in the 1950s, a fragment from a carved angel’s wing is discovered. Maybe the wooden angels that once supported the church roof were not, after all, destroyed centuries ago, but spirited away to safety. Two children decide to find them.
There are few clues, but a strange inscription on the church wall leads them into terrifying places – up to the top of the church tower, down a tunnel where they are nearly drowned. A tense and fast-paced story of detection for younger readers.
