The Showman And The Shade by Mr Nicky P Gardiner

Jack Wrightman was desperate for the success that had eluded him his entire life. This was until he stumbled upon an ancient book granting him power over the dead. Using dark magic he binds an unwitting soul to his will. His goal: to use the enslaved spirit to act as an intermediary in talking to the deceased, and to become a world-renowned spiritualist medium (and filthy rich to boot).

What Jack doesn't count on is the unwillingness of his new-found assistant...

"...If you are into the supernatural or interested in the afterlife this book will be right up your street. From the moment I read the first few pages I just couldn't put it down. I was hooked! Great imagination and storyline. Would definitely recommend." by Mum of 2

"A real page turner. Well paced and gripping, thoroughly enjoyable." by Mr B

"....I was gripped from the start. At times this novel had me on the edge of my seat whilst also allowing me an emotional connection to the characters running through the storyline. I measure a great book by its excellent read from start to finish and this book did not disappoint! I am now left wanting more..... I highly recommend this book to anyone who is partial to paranormal thrillers and I can't wait for the next book from this author." by MT-Crafty Lady
