The Darkness of the Knight
He who plays with fire usually burns, bringing forth destruction unto himself and to those all around.
A face familiar to some returns to an English village to visit an old friend. Suspicion becomes rife among many of the residents when they hear he emerged out of the darkness from across the marsh.
Something is going to happen in the village tonight, but nobody is saying what. Nobody, that is, except Vincent Carruthers who takes the visitor by the hand, and between them they resolve to uncover a sinister plot based on a false prophecy. But is it truly false?
What has happened to The Reverend’s daughter? And what part does Old Glennie and the practice of witchcraft play on this, the darkest of nights as it threatens to repeat the horror of something that happened twelve years earlier?
The Darkness of the Knight is the 4th of the short stories making up the series: Second Chance
