ABOUT THIS BOOKFolks, nobody writes ghost stories like Terry and its fair to say that nobody knows Terry and his work better than Steven Savile. Started by Wright some years ago and now completed masterfully by Steve; MALLHAM CROSS tells the story of a city where everyone is a ghost, inverting the whole ghost story trope by having a hero who is essentially the only living boy in New York. A single house in a city of hauntings which is the only place that isnt home to its own ghosts?
Here are the books first six lines.
The stranger watched them lynch the boy.
He took out his mobile phone, filming the whole thing.
The hood over the head meant they didnt have to watch his expression as he realized he was dying all over again. Some days he didnt wear the hood. His fingers clawed at the noose while his låegs kicked. Then they stopped kicking and he just twisted in the morning breeze.
