Event description

Description

Join us to celebrate the launch of The Devil Upstairs - the latest novel from Anthony O’Neill, author of the highly acclaimed Dr Jekyll & Mr Seek, sequel to Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic novella.
Described as Rosemary’s Baby meets Ambrose Parry’s The Way of All Flesh, The Devil Upstairs is a modern day allegorical thriller based in Edinburgh:
Cat Thomas lies delirious in her Dean Village flat, dreaming of ways in which to get rid of the neighbour keeping her awake every night. Desperate for a solution, she joins a friend at work at a witch’s conclave and is blissfully surprised when the noise suddenly stops. But when the neighbour is found dead and Cat’s perfect man arrives in his place, the problems she thought were solved find new ways to come back to haunt her.
Impeccably plotted, intricately nuanced and shot through with wicked humour, The Devil Upstairs perfectly captures the shadowy beauty and mystery of Edinburgh’s architecture, atmosphere and history, giving literary voice to its world-renowned status as a “haunted” city.
