The Embalmer is an excellent, fast-paced and well written and plotted novel! I did not want to put it down. Prepare to lose sleep * Rebecca Kelly, author of MONSTROUS SOULS *
The Embalmer is another creepy and compulsive tale from Alison Belsham, author of the brilliantly terrifying The Tattoo Thief. Lock the doors and keep the lights on because we're back in Brighton with Marni Mullins and DI Sullivan, chasing down a serial killer with a penchant for mummification and ancient Egyptian immortality rites. Beautifully crafted and with writing so visual it leaps off the page, The Embalmer will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very last page. * Amy McLellan, author of REMEMBER ME *
An engrossing, fast-paced serial killer story with multiple plots as tightly interwoven as the linen strips around a mummy! * Heleen Kist *
Intriguing, compelling and chilling, I was hooked on The Embalmer from the first page. A brilliant mix of gothic and police procedural. * Sarah Ward, author of THE QUICKENING *
Pacy, cinematic, dark - a much needed dose of escapism. * Daniel Cole, author of RAGDOLL *
