Inhaltsangabe

Brighton, 1951. Pantomime season takes a dark turn when two missing children are found dead under the snow, surrounded by sweets - a macabre, real-life Hansel and Gretel.

DI Edgar Stephens, has plenty of leads to investigate. The missing girl, Annie, used to write plays and perform them with her friends. Does the clue lie in Annie's unfinished - and rather disturbing - last script? Or might it lie with the eccentric actor types who have assembled for the pantomime?

Once again Edgar enlists magician and ex-wartime comrade Max Mephisto's help in penetrating the shadowy theatrical world that seems to hold the key. But is this all just classic misdirection?

Kritikerstimmen

"Enormously engaging.... Post-war Brighton and its Theatre Royal are beautifully captured in all their seedy glory...subtle, charming and very good." ( Daily Mail on The Zig Zag Girl)
"The historical detail is very well done...an extremely well-written and well-researched novel." ( Literary Review on The Zig Zag Girl)

Nette Unterhaltung!

Nette, skurile Charaktere, die man gleich in's Herz schließt. Gut und verständlich gelesen. Freue mich auf weitere Folgen.
