Аннотация к книге "Familiar Territory" Barry Durham:
Emma Craine, depressed after a miscarriage some months previously, is drawn to a charismatic fortune teller at a New Age Fair in Manchester. His counsel is reassuring and afterwards Emma curiously finds her own psychic abilities beginning to emerge as her sexuality returns.
Then she discovers she is the target of a terrifying stalker.
The horrific death of a colleague leaves DI Alf Stone a little out of his depth until an unexpected visit from a paranormal researcher monk. He suggests that the 'stalker' could be the fortune teller's demonic familiar who appears to have struck several times before.
Stone and his new sergeant Alexandra Johnson are still sceptical however and set about dealing with the situation using normal police methods until forced to confront the truth.
Emma meanwhile receives subtle help from the witches of Pendle who recognise her as one of their own, but even they have to call on the services of an enigmatic lone witch who has to delve deep into the past.
