Fade to Black

(The first book in the Allie St Clair series)
A novel by

'Steven Bannister's 'Black' Series is a must-read' - David Leadbeater- U.K. Best selling author of the Matt Drake and Alicia Myles Thrillers.

'Fade to Black is action-packed, darkly amusing and definitely disturbing - Bannister takes you on one hell of a ride.'' - Karen Perkins, best-selling author of the Valkyrie Series and Yorkshire Ghost Stories.

'Bannister's DCI St Clair and Michael are a great pairing. The Black Series is an absolute thrill- a -minute cracker.'
Fade to Black is a fast-paced thriller. It blends present day crime themes with darker, mysterious undertones.

'London's dark underbelly is exposed in Fade to Black in a quirky, original and compelling way. Its a first-class thriller.'


There's more going on in London than meets the eye.

Allie St Clair is New Scotland Yard's brightest. She's the youngest woman ever to be promoted to Detective Chief Inspector and the hopes of many ride with her.

But something is very wrong in rain-swept London.
A brutal, crucifixion- style murder rocks the inner city on her first day in her new job and her former boss dies violently, but not before he alludes to rampant 'darker' criminal elements.
Murders are going unsolved and before long her superiors at The Yard are baying for her blood. She must find a demented murderer to end the chaos and in a frantic race against time, rescue a valued colleague. For Allison St Clair, things get complicated and very personal.

A breathtaking climax and revelations about mystical Glastonbury Tor lead to Allie St Clair's life being changed forever. She discovers to her horror why she alone has been chosen to partner the mysterious 'Michael' to combat the satanic 'Mr Black'.
