The Four Last Things (Roth Trilogy, Bk. 1) : Little Lucy Appleyard is snatched from her babysitter on a cold winter afternoon, and the nightmare begins. It is as if the child has disappeared into a black hole with no clues to her whereabouts - until the first discovery in a London graveyard. More such finds are to follow, all at religious sites. In a city haunted by religion, what do these offerings signify? All that stands now between Lucy and the final sacrifice are her parents - a CID sergeant on the verge of disgrace and a woman cleric - but how can they hope to halt the evil forces that are gathering around their innocent daughter?
