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, 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.

She is able to write across genres - comments about the author's other titles -
"The best psychological thriller I've read for years" Jane Gardam.
'Uneasily funny, sad and terrifying. I read the book very quickly, hardly daring to put it down" Lesley Glaister.
