A horrible crime takes place in a Scottish village and Detective Andrew Carmichael andhis inseparable companion, Harry Logan, are sent to investigate the incident and who specialize in strange events. Once there they encounter nightmarish scenes and discover the first clue: A diary that talks about a roll of film…

So begins this fabulous novel that takes us through the horrors of a brutal slaughter accompanied, not only by the detective and his partner, but as a special guest is Mr. Peter Cushing. In 1956, the actor is about to participate in the filming of The Curse of Frankenstein with Hammer Films and give the task of documented and study the origin of human fear. To do this, he goes to talk with various experts who speak him about a damn movie: La Fête du Monsieur Orphée.

With these ingredients, there’s not much to say, just let go of the hand of the author in a great and easily lecture, with facts and stories seamlessly intertwined, surprising discoveries, Hammer Films and Peter Cushing showing that besides being a perfect English gentleman, can become a daring adventurer and elegant.




A more than perfect tribute to the horror literary genre, Hammer movies and unique and brilliant actor as Peter Cushing who I cannot resist talking later in this blog.
