In James Herbert's Shrine, a deaf-mute girl recovers her hearing and sight upon seeing a vision of a woman in white. A vision who proclaims herself the Immaculate Conception. Her village is shocked as she starts performing miracles and the site of the visitation becomes a shrine.

But as pilgrims flock to the village, a local priest begins to have doubts. Are the miracles acts of God or the work of something wicked? And when he dies in suspicious circumstances it seems the source of the miracles is far from holy.

Who will stop the ancient force from using the girl as an instrument of its despicable evil?

Thrills and chills galore from the bestseller Herbert . . . his best yet . . . the build-up to the horrifying climax is subtle and sophisticated
