Dr Bob Strong's GP surgery has been treating a lot of coughs and colds recently, far more than is normal for the time of year. Bob thinks there's something up but he can't think what. He seems to have caught it himself, whatever it is - he's starting to cough badly and there are flecks of blood in his hanky. Saskia Harden has been found on a number of occasions submerged in ponds or canals but alive and seemingly none the worse for wear. Saskia is not on any files, except in the medical records at Dr Strong's GP practice. But Torchwood's priorities lie elsewhere: investigating ghostly apparitions in South Wales, they have found a dead body. It's old and in an advanced state of decay. And it is still able to talk. And what it is saying is 'Water hag'.

Once again I thoroughly enjoyed reading a Torchwood novel. They're a quick read but only because they're so good you can't put them down!

I got started on Torchwood (the TV series) after watching numerous episodes of Doctor Who. Therefore, I'm not that big on gore, body counts and the supernatural, I'm more of an alien person. But Owen Harper was my favourite Torchwood character and since he seemed to have prominence in this book, I decided to read it. Well, let's just say I didn't really get much sleep that night after cowering under the covers hoping Sally Blackteeth wouldn't come and breath on me...*shudders* :D Recommended for all who like ghost stories and the undead :D I think I feel a sore throat coming on...

Slightly disgusting and oddly fitting to the present period. Check it out.
