Dr Janet Palmer is the new lead psychologist at HMP Halvergate in a remote, bleak area of Norfolk. At first, she was excited by the promotion. Then she starts to see how many secrets are hiding behind the high walls.
A string of inmates have committed suicide, leaving no reasons why, and her predecessor has disappeared – along with his notes. The staff are hostile, the threat of violence is ever-present, and there are rumours of an eyeless woman stalking the corridors, punishing the inmates for their sins.
Janet is determined to find out what is really going on. But the longer she stays and the deeper she digs, the more uncertain she feels.
Halvergate is haunted by something. But it may be a terror worse than ghosts.


Dr Janet Palmer is the new psychologist at Halvergate prison. Six men, sex offenders are on a sex offenders treatment programme. Dr Janet Palmer always makes a point of asking the sex offenders questions like how do you feel that the programme went and what are you hoping to get out of the programme? All of the prisoners were in the prison for a reason. One was a serial rapist, there were some convicted of statutory rape and sexually motivated murders. One man who was a paedophile. The prison also had some men that were a lot older and some of the prisoners were repeat offenders. It was a well-known fact to the prison that some of the sex offenders didn’t get any family coming to visit them, so the prison put out an advert to visit the sex offenders treatment . Occasionally the prison experienced some of the inmates committed suicide.
I really enjoyed this prison theme story were questioning everyone and trusting no one stands out well and truly.
