Excitement about Jonathan Skariton’s
SÉANCE INFERNALE

“A rip-roaring pulp-fiction thriller filled with sinister subterranean spaces—labyrinths, tunnels, caves—in an exotically-rendered Edinburgh. But uniquely, it is also an eye-opening excursion into the origins of cinema, as Skariton, meshing fact with fantasy, explores the hidden history of the all-but-unknown inventor of moving pictures. Irresistible.”
—Foster Hirsch, author of Film Noir: The Dark Side of the Screen

“Thrilling . . .mesmerizing.” 
—Marilyn Stasio, NY Times Book Review

“Just enough intrigue to keep your fascination . . . captivating . . . entertaining; the gothic and supernatural atmosphere of the novel is its most engaging facet and this alone will most certainly keep the average mystery/thriller reader on the edge of their seat until the heart pounding final pages.”
—Michael Thomas Barry, NY Journal of Books
 
“A post-millennial gothic ripsnorter [that] blends old-fashioned suspense and up-to-the-minute sadism in the dark streets and even darker underbelly of Edinburgh . . . An intricately designed thriller . . . This debut novel resembles a series of trap doors springing open and shut and open again . . . Its basic premise fascinates, and its fog-shrouded intrigue keeps your head in the game.”
Kirkus Reviews
 
Séance Infernal is a menacing Gothic nightmare, a love letter to the dawn of cinema, to the ghost-ridden city of Edinburgh, and to the golden age of pulp fiction. There are subterranean tunnels and immolations; there’s knife play and gunfire, alchemy and patent theft. It’s a whipsaw ride, but always good, giddy fun.”
—Scott Smith, author of A Simple Plan & The Ruins
