The lure of fame

Sold by her father to a 'Professor of Ghosts', Lily Bell dreams of a career on the Victorian stage. But Erasmus Salt is promising his audience not mere theatre, but a glimpse of the spirit world. And Lily is to be his ghost.

The power of illusion

Obsessed with perfection, Erasmus goes to extreme lengths to ensure his illusion is complete. When Lily finds her own obituary in the paper, and then her own headstone in the cemetery, she realises that she is trapped.

The danger of obsession

But Erasmus is haunted by more than one betrayal - and as the curtain falls, Lily's fate is soon to become even darker...
