Summary
A family is hunted by a centuries-old monster: a man with a relentless obsession who can take on any identity. [The book] "opens with Hannah frantically driving through the night--her daughter asleep in the back, her husband bleeding out in the seat beside her. In the trunk of the car rests a cache of diaries dating back two hundred years, tied and retied with string for generations. The diaries carry the rules for survival that have been handed down from mother to daughter since the nineteenth century. But how can Hannah escape an enemy with the ability to look and sound like the people she loves?"--Dust jacket flap

Summary
Present Day: Cadair Idris, Snowdonia. Hannah Wilde flees to Llyn Gwyr, a remote mountain farmhouse, her husband bleeding to death on the passenger seat beside her. In the back of the car sits their seven year old daughter. Hannah's father is missing. Her mother is already dead. Mysterious strangers are converging on the mountain. And Hannah must decide who to trust and who to sacrifice if she's to defeat the predator who has stalked five generations of her family. 1979: Balliol College, Oxford. Charles Meredith, a brilliant, obsessive professor, clashes with a beautiful French woman in Balliol's library. When the woman disappears, and her identity is exposed as a sham, Charles is dragged into a terrifying pursuit. 1873: Godollo, Hungary. Lukas Balazs prepares for his vegzet night, the celebration that symbolises his entry into adulthood. But the festivities are about to go horribly wrong, and only Lukas knows why. A centuries-old secret is about to unravel. Jakab is coming.
