Review Text

Kirsty, Avril and Bernadette meet on a train from Liverpool en route to new jobs in a Cornish hotel. The girls' accommodation is inadequate, their pay negligible. They need a break. Kirsty, a bright girl, and the trio's only reader, finds in the hotel library a novel that blows her mind. Written by an unknown author, published in 1913 by a now-defunct firm, it's obviously out of print and long forgotten. Kirsty decides to update the plot, cut the flowery language and sell it as a new book. With luck it should solve all their problems. And initially luck seems to be with them. But the euphoria doesn't last. The past begins to catch up with them, the book begins to take on a life of its own. A reign of terror threatens their newly-won peace of mind - and ultimately their lives. Those of a nervous disposition should brace themselves. White takes no prisoners...! (Kirkus UK)show more
