It’s 1863 and seventeen year old Finn Carey wants it all – a bit cocky, even for a young Irishman working in the mills of Massachusetts, but ambition is the one thing Finn never lacked. It’s when scores of bodies wash onto the rocky shore, poor immigrants on an ocean-crossing from Ireland, that Finn confronts a diabolical ambition that dwarfs his own. As the sun goes down, the ship that carried his brother and sisters runs aground nearby, neither mast nor spar out of true, and not a soul onboard. The darkened ship groans against the rocks, and from deep inside the holds rises a vile evil, who slips into the night.
