Book Description HTML
Whilst investigating the death of a local nurse, a friendly computer programmer called Moe Lester uncovers a legend about a supernaturally-cursed, minuscule knife circulating throughout Scotland. As soon as anyone uses the knife, he or she has exactly 21 days left to live. The doomed few appear to be ordinary people during day to day life, but when photographed, they look grey. A marked person feels like a dull fox to touch. Moe gets hold of the knife, refusing to believe the superstition. A collage of images flash into her mind: a minuscule horse balancing on a vast nurse, an old newspaper headline about a skating accident, a hooded toad ranting about fingers and a drinking well located in a rural place. When Moe notices her thighs have fox-like properties, she realizes the curse.
