But when Ishmael reaches Ringstone Lodge where Parker is being held, he is menaced by a series of alarming incidents.

Severn House are also due to publish DEAD MAN WALKING in the US on September 1st, 2016.


The first in the series was well-received. Here’s just a small sample taken from the reviews…

‘[A] brisk, breezy first in a new mystery series… Convincing supernatural twists [and] witty chapter titles… readers will be anxious for a sequel.’ Publishers Weekly

‘I really enjoyed the book. If anything it was over too soon. The author captures the English Country Manor Murder Mystery feel very well, as he sets up pretty much everybody as a suspect… I look forward to finding out more in future volumes.’ — British Fantasy Society

‘Genre-blending author Green introduces another wisecracking protagonist, Ishmael Jones…Fans of the British TV series Torchwood will enjoy the irreverent, otherworldly protagonist.’ — Booklist

Simon R. Green is also the best-selling author of the Nightside, Secret Histories and Ghost Finders series, all published as eBooks in the UK by Jo Fletcher Books.
