A movie scream so chilling and powerful, it will open up another dimension ...
Orphaned twins Isabelle and Beatrice Thorn are living a glamorous 1920s Hollywood life as wards of Mr. Cecil, a mysterious and influential director. Isabelle is a silent film starlet, destined for greatness in the very first "talkie"--a horror flick. Beatrice spends her days hidden away on the Cecil estate with her books and her insect collection, scarves covering her birthmarks and baldness. But Beatrice’s curiosity about the death of her parents and the unsettling fate of a reporter is getting the better of her and she’s starting to realize Mr. Cecil has truly dark designs for this movie.

So I was just going to read the first few pages of ... FLICKERS this morning to get a taste of what the book was like but then I COULDN’T STOP READING.

Wow. Such a good read.

Arthur Slade sets the stage for a page-turner that’s as terrifying and satisfying as the classic horror flicks that inspired it. Flickers is—forgive me—screamingly good.

Brilliant! Flickers is a big novel about life, love, and family, but it’s full of Slade-style surprises and spooky glimpses of what’s really behind the big screen.
