Product Details


“Thrilling. . . . Mesmerizing.” —The New York Times Book Review

“A menacing Gothic nightmare, a love letter to the dawn of cinema. . . . A whipsaw ride. . . . Good, giddy fun.” —Scott Smith, author of The Ruins

Da Vinci Code-esque. . . . Especially fun for classic film buffs. . . . Breathless readers will scramble to keep up.” —Publishers Weekly
“If you are a fan of Caleb Carr or Dan Brown, get ready for an exciting new voice named Jonathan Skariton. . . . A recommended thriller.” —Mystery Tribune

“Ingenious. . . . Dramatic, film-worthy. . . . Becomes like a 3-D or 4-D puzzle with touches of malice, magic and mysticism. . . . [Skariton] is whip-smart and knowledgeable.” —Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

 “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

“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.” —New York Journal of Books
“A post-millennial gothic ripsnorter . . . blends old-fashioned suspense and up-to-the-minute sadism in the dark streets and even darker underbelly of Edinburgh. . . . An intricately designed thriller. . . . Its basic premise fascinates, and its fog-shrouded intrigue keeps your head in the game.” —Kirkus Reviews
