Free Stephen Hunt novella on Kindle during the SFX Weekender
To celebrate this weekend’s live event, you’ll be able to read thriller “In The Company Of Ghosts” digitally for free
This weekend sees the ultimate sci-festival kick off at Prestatyn Sands holiday camp. To help mark the event, one of the event’s guest stars, author Stephen Hunt, is making his novella In The Company Of Ghosts free for download worldwide on Amazon Kindle from Thursday 2 February to Sunday 5 February – the actual days of the event. In The Company Of Ghosts is a thriller with elements of fantasy and horror, and is the first in Stephen Hunt’s new spy-fi series.
Agatha Witchley used to be a spy in the Cold War, but now she’s locked up in the UK’s premier maximum-security mental institution. She believes that the ghosts of the celebrity dead visit her padded cell and whisper the world’s secrets in her ears. Which is a big problem for the British government, because she’s the only one who can help them when an American billionaire is murdered in London in one of the strangest killings yet. The Home Secretary needs the case locked down and solved before the entrepreneur’s death becomes public knowledge and economic chaos ensures. The woman he has in mind for the job might be paranoid, she might be lethal, she might half-insane and drawing a pension, but it’s amazing how you can forgive that in a genius when it’s a genius’s help you need. Yes, the security forces need Agatha Witchley again. It’s just the ghosts of Churchill, Elvis and Groucho Marx they could do without.
