This. This was the Knacker. There would be no discussion. There would be no rapport. There was only hunger. There was only inhuman malice and cold, merciless death. For they knew now what tribute it demanded…”
A Knacker, an ancient spirit of the Cornish tin mines has been roused from its decades long slumber with one thing on its mind: tribute.

Can the beast be stopped? How much blood will be shed before the Knacker is satisfied with its ‘tribute’? What is the dark secret behind George, the old handyman who seems to know more than he’s letting on?
And what is causing the spirits of Cornwall to stir and awaken after remaining hidden for so long?
Find out in this, The Knacker, first book of the Cornish Guardians series.
