The Trick of The Dead

A novel by

The Trick of the Dead - Some people are born never to be apart. Not even death can truly separate them. In The Trick of the Dead, one man has the power to reunite the living with what they have lost. In a cold Italian winter, The Great Mercurio - magician and mentalist - changes what he touches. He touches Dorothy, in flight from what she remembers - thinks she remembers - and nothing is the same again. Penelope Evans, bestselling author of The Last Girl, has taken the mysterious ties that bind - the passions of twins and lovers - and woven them into a story in which Death is a never distant player. Admired for her storytelling skills of obsession and menace, she has created yet another tale, hypnotic and compulsive to read. Her first novel featured as a BBC book at bedtime, read by Warren Mitchell. Described by Ruth Rendell as "remarkable ... ... with qualities seldom found today: a strong story, characters that are alive from the first page, and brilliant authorial control over the narrative". Details of her other novels can be found at
