I bit the bullet and purchased a Kindle edition of this book, because I was so enamored of the previous two in the series. Plus I'm headed to Scotland in August. Plus I'm a theater nerd.
It was everything I wanted and more. I was floored that so much of what de Muriel included in the novel was based on actual writings/knowledge of the time. The confluence of Stoker, Irving, and Terry both in real life and in this novel opened my eyes to the theater of the time. And the enormity of the danger! Who knew?!
I was sucked into the storytelling, and the real life backstage drama. Working in a theater I'm familiar with how insane things can be, but these antics bested a lot of even what I've seen.
The continuing relationship between McFrey and Nine Nails is masterful. de Muriel continues to delve into their quirky dynamic, while still having real stakes to play throughout.
Can't wait to pick up LOCH OF THE DEAD.
