We’ve just had advance copies of Shadows of the Silver Screen by Christopher Edge, the second book in the Twelve Minutes to Midnight series, arrive in the Nest, and they look great! So, to celebrate, here’s the first chapter of the new book – which will be published in January – to read for free:
The year is 1900, and in Shadows of the Silver Screen, a mysterious filmmaker approaches The Penny Dreadful with a proposal to turn Montgomery Flinch’s sinister stories into motion pictures. With Monty installed as the star of his production, filming begins but is plagued by a series of strange and frightening events. As Monty pleads with Penny to help him, she is drawn into the mystery, but soon finds herself trapped in a nightmare penned by her own hand. Can Penny uncover the filmmaker’s dark secret before it’s too late?
