Waterstones Says

From the author of The Silent Companions and The Shape of Darkness comes a thrilling gothic tale of dangerous bargains and vaulting ambition, as an actress makes a pact with an ancient Greek muse to become the greatest performer of all time.

Signed Edition

A Standard Edition is available here

Be careful what you wish for... it may just come true.

At The Mercury Theatre in London's West End, rumours are circulating of a curse. It is said that the lead actress Lilith has made a pact with Melpomene, the tragic muse of Greek mythology, to become the greatest actress to ever grace the stage.

Suspicious of Lilith, the jealous wife of the theatre owner sends dresser Jenny to spy on her, and desperate for the money to help her family, Jenny agrees. What Jenny finds is a woman as astonishing in her performance as she is provocative in nature.

On stage, it's as though Lilith is possessed by the characters she plays, yet off stage she is as tragic as the Muse who inspires her, and Jenny, sorry for her, befriends the troubled actress. But when strange events begin to take place around the theatre, Jenny wonders if the rumours are true, and fears that when the Muse comes calling for payment, the cost will be too high.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Laura Purcell just gets better and better' - Stacey Halls

'Darkly seductive and artfully realised, this is a novel which in true Purcell style weaves a menacing net of intrigue that makes it very hard to put down. Undoubtedly her best Gothic tale yet!' - Susan Stokes-Chapman

'Spooky, atmospheric, brilliant ... Think I love it the best out of all Laura's books. Watch out for it - but beware...' - Bridget Collins
