Inhaltsangabe

It is 1889 and The Scottish Play is coming home. But before the darling couple of London theatre, Henry Irving and Ellen Terry, take their acclaimed Macbeth to the Edinburgh stage terror treads the boards. A grisly message is found smeared across the cobbles in blood, foretelling someone's demise. As the bloody prophecies continue to appear, Edinburgh's own beloved pair - Detective 'Nine-Nails' McGray and Inspector Ian Frey - enter the scene. Frey scoffs at this blatant publicity stunt, while McGray is convinced of supernatural affairs. As they scrutinise the key players, they discover that Terry, Irving, and his peculiar, preoccupied assistant (one Bram Stoker) all have reasons to kill, or be killed.... But one thing is clear. By occult curse or human hand, death will take a bow the night the curtain rises.

Kritikerstimmen

"Fun to read and a fast page-turner...love and murder - they go together like strawberries and cream." ( Independent)
"A hugely entertaining Victorian mystery." ( The New York Times)
"This is wonderful. A brilliant, moving, clever, lyrical book - I loved it. Oscar de Muriel is going to be a name to watch." (Manda Scott)
"One of the best debuts so far this year - a brilliant mix of horror, history, and humour. Genuinely riveting with plenty of twists, this will keep you turning the pages. It's clever, occasionally frightening and superbly written...Everything you need in a mystery thriller." ( Crime Review)
"This is a fast-paced, well-researched and thoroughly spellbinding read. The mismatched pair is as entertaining as Holmes and Watson at their best, and the supernatural element brings an entertaining twist." ( The Historical Novel Society)
"I enjoyed this - properly creepy and Gothic." (Ian Rankin)

Sehr guter Roman und perfekter Sprecher!

Vielleicht eine etwas weniger kriminalistische Geschichte. Das erste Buch ist in dieser Beziehung immer noch das beste. Der übernatürliche Part ist eher Beiwerk und Aufhänger für die Geschichte über "the scottish play". Dafür aber erneut spannend geschrieben und fantastisch gelesen.
Absolut lohnenswert!
