Hang Wire

(2014)
A novel by

 
Ted Kane is worried. He's been sleepwalking, and his somnambulant travels appear to coincide with murders by the notorious Hang Wire Killer.

Meanwhile, the circus has come to town, but the Celtic dancers are taking their pagan act a little too seriously, the manager of the Olde Worlde Funfair has started talking to his vintage machines, and the new acrobat's frequent absences are causing tension among the performers.

Out in the city there are other new arrivals - immortals searching for an ancient power - a primal evil which, if unopposed, could destroy the world!

-----

"Adam Christopher's HANG WIRE reads like Erin Morgenstern via Tim Powers, but the dark, creepy heart that beats at its center is entirely its own. It's good unclean fun, and so addictive."
- Kelly Braffet, author of "Save Yourself"

"The sheer volume of ideas is dizzying... an enjoyably fast-paced read."
- SFX Magazine.

"Christopher fulfils our expectations and more: just when we think the story couldn't get any weirder, he adds a whole new layer of weird, bouncing from one unexpected moment of goofiness to another, keeping us stuck to our chairs until we think it'll take an industrial-strength solvent to pry us loose. Days after finishing the book, you'll still have a grin on your face."
- Booklist starred review

"[Hang Wire] feels like an old story, but one told in a fresh and relevant way. Which to me means it is excellent storytelling. It could be read as almost anti-science or anti-science fiction even (anti- as in opposite, not against), reflecting past-times when horrors such as earthquakes and comets were explained by supernatural events ... So, what is Hang Wire? A very good piece of storytelling. A damn fine read."
- Geek Syndicate

"To put it simply, this is one of the best sci-fi novels in years. Try this one out, it's a worthwhile experience and one that beats any number of Hollywood blockbusters for pure originality and panache. A fantastic read."
- Kafka's Cage

"Hang Wire is just pure fun. Yes, there are some dark doings here (something huge is awakening underground and gods are running around wearing human facades, and of course, murder), however, Adam Christopher manages to pull off the right amount of creepy (and some great action scenes) without ever getting too dark. Fans of quirky urban fantasy will devour this one. Loved it!"
