Publisher's Synopsis

'A sweeping tale of dark magic, artistic obsession, and a love unbound from the limits of time' Paulette Kennedy

A vanished star. A haunted film. A mystery only love can unravel . . .


Gemma Turner once dreamed of stardom, now she's on the cusp of obscurity. When a radical new horror film offers her the leading role, her luck looks set to change. Until one dark night, Gemma disappears on set and is never seen again. But this is only the beginning... Gemma has been pulled into the film itself, where the script - and the horrors within it - are more real than she ever imagined, and she must play her role perfectly if she hopes to survive.


Gemma Turner's disappearance is one of Hollywood's greatest mysteries - one that's captivated film student Christopher ever since he saw the infamous L'Étrange Lune for the first time. The film is screened just once a decade, and each time there is new, impossible footage of Gemma that simply shouldn't exist. Compelled by curiosity, Christopher dares to unravel the truth. But answers to the film's mystery may leave him trapped by it forever...
