Next month, we’ll be publishing Rose Campion and the Curse of the Doomstone by Lyn Gardner: packed with atmosphere, theatricality and intrigue, this is the second gripping instalment in the THRILLING Campion series – the follow-up to the incredible Rose Campion and the Stolen Secret.
Finished copies of the book have just arrived in the office, and they look absolutely STUNNING – and today, you can take a first look inside, with an exclusive preview of the opening two chapters!
Business has never been better for Campion’s Palace of Variety and Wonders – and the music hall is about to open its doors to its biggest act yet: the Illustrious Gandini, the stage magician known as the Great Wizard of the North. But when the Doomstone Diamond – a priceless jewel with a disturbing history – is stolen during one of Gandini’s performances, Campion’s finds itself under threat once more, and Rose Campion and her friends will need all their wits about them as they dash across Victorian London – from high society gatherings to the depths of Newgate prison – in a desperate bid to solve the mystery of the stolen Doomstone Diamond, and save Rose’s beloved home, Campion’s Music Hall, from closure!
Here’s a very first look inside the book:
Set against a brilliant backdrop of smoky, foggy, fin-de-siecle London, filled with fantastic theatrical detail, and with a cast of rogues worthy of Agatha Christie, this is a can’t-put-it-down mystery from a master storyteller that will have you guessing until the final chapter.
Rose Campion and the Curse of the Doomstone will be available in shops in February – if you’d like to stay up to date with all of our book news, you can sign up to our books newsletter at this page, or with the form below, and you’ll never miss a thing.
