Overview

From the author of cult vampire novel Suckers and Notting Hill ghost story Stiff Lips comes another ghost story, narrated with self-lacerating humour by a private eye who has a lot to learn about himself and the world of the supernatural.

Alice Marchmont is classy, beautiful and about to get married to the most eligible bachelor in town. But she needs John Croydon's help. Because Alice has a stalker - it's her fiance's ex-wife, who is threatening to disrupt the wedding... or worse. Croydon has just one week to persuade this inconvenient ex to back down and leave the happy couple alone. Problem is, she's going to take some persuading. Because she's dead. Has been dead for quite some time. And she isn't looking pretty.

In the course of an investigation that will lead him from London to Norfolk and, ultimately, to Venice, John Croydon will be forced to dig into his own troubled past for answers. He will discover that looks can be deceptive, women are not to be trusted, one canal is much like another... and that some ghosts are worse than others. A lot worse.
