Summary "The secret to film is that it's only an illusion -- or so he thought. London, April 1914. Against his better judgement, Detective Inspector Silas Quinn is attending the premiere of the new motion picture by notorious American film-maker Konrad Waechter. But the glamorous event is interrupted by the piercing screams of a young woman in the street outside. She has been viciously mutilated in a horrific accident which eerily echoes a macabre act of violence in Waechter's film. As he questions those who attended the premiere, Quinn's jaundiced view of the fledgling film industry as a business based on pretence, where no one is what they seem, appears to be justified. But soon the investigation takes a disturbing twist that has him questioning everything he thought he knew... A blood-curdling, unputdownable historical mystery, for fans of C. J. Sansom, Rory Clements and S. G. MacLean. Praise for R. N. Morris ‘At once fascinating and repelling, this is a gripping read' Booklist. 'Ruth Rendell fans open to stories set a century ago will be well satisfied' Publishers Weekly."-- Provided by Freading.
