“Someone is killing doctors in the style of the murders in Vincent Price movies, leaving the Bristol police baffled. The only man who could possibly be responsible died years ago . . . or did he . . .?”
Spectral Press have announced the second book in their Spectral Visions series to be The Nine Deaths of Dr. Valentine by John L. Probert. The book is the latest offering from John L. Probert, author of the award winning Faculty of Terror and is due to be officially launched at FantasyCon 2012 in September. The plot of the book includes many things close to the author’s heart – blood, murder and of course, cinema.
“The police in Bristol have been confronted by a series of the most perplexingly elaborate deaths they’ve ever encountered in all their years of murder enquiries. The only thing which connects them is their seemingly random nature and their sheer outrageousness. As Detective Inspector Longdon and his assistant Sergeant Jenny Newham (with the help of pathologist Dr. Richard Patterson) race against time to find the murderer, they eventually realise that the link which connects the killings is even more bizarre than any of them dared to think…”
The Nine Deaths of Dr. Valentine is available as a signed and numbered hardback limited to 100 copies worldwide, with full-colour covers, coloured endpapers and silk ribbon bookmarker. It is available to pre-order from the Spectral Press website.
