Tony Marchant

Published by AmberLane Press

2 Male 1 Female

Sam Lawson runs a 'black museum' in a seaside town. There are some very strange exhibits on display, including a lot of nasty-looking murder weapons. But business is bad - until young Danny breezes in with some fresh ideas about what the public wants

"Marchant, whose writing has lost none of its verve and authenticity, and whose creation of character remains consummate, sets up a situation that chillingly explores the darker aspects of human thoughts and behaviour" ~ Lyn Gardner, City Limits

"The greatest pleasure is Marchant's heightened, even Baroque use of the vernacular, and his way with humour ... he is an instinctive dramatist" ~ Giles Gordon, London Daily News

"[a] sharp-witted and wise psychological mystery..." ~ Eric Shorter, The Daily Telegraph

"...there is great pleasure to be found in Marchant's chamber of horrors ... his writing is Stanley-blade acute..." ~ Alex Renton, The Independent
