One day a dark-haired stranger walked into the offices of The Bluecoat Press, asking to talk to Colin Wilkinson. The meeting marked the beginning of one of the most successful partnerships in local publishing. The stranger was Tom Slemen, and he was clutching a manuscript, a manuscript which, just a short time before, he had contemplated throwing into the River Mersey - Colin was his last hope.
Since then, Tom Slemen's popularity has mushroomed. His radio shows attract huge audiences and his columns in three local newspapers are avidly read by an enormous and ever increasing readership. The people of Liverpool just can't get enough of his work.
This is the fifteenth book to be written by Tom Slemen and the tenth in the Haunted Liverpool series and it bears all the hallmarks of the master storyteller's work: alongside a classic mix of murder, mystery and suspense you will find local tales of the supernatural, unexplained mysteries and the downright weird and grotesque. From the shocking cases of the demonic ship's captain who slaughtered most of his crew and the headless nun who reduces a grown man to jelly, to the crazed parrot whose mimicry exposes an adulteress and the girl in the red dress who is a harbinger of doom, these stories, like all his others, will make the hair stand up on the back of your neck.
