    This is a really interesting supernatural thriller with some killer ideas at work. The characters are well drawn, the evocation of old movie magic and modern London crime an excellent juxtaposition.

    Mystery, magic, cinema, a hint of the 1920's, hell yes. I had no expectations going into this novel so maybe I was more easily pleased than I normally am, but whatever I enjoyed this. It's a slower paced book, but no where near plodding; it just draws you in. ...
