Camera by Eva-Marie Liffner

Camera

Eva-Marie Liffner

Part crime and part historical fiction, Camera skilfully tells a macabre story of early photography and spiritualism. Moving in an almost dreamlike way between past and present, London and Gothenburg, as Johanna unravels her uncle's past.

Extract

People who mattered were intrigued, though quite a few had doubts about it. Of course, the person behind the magazine was a women and, worse, a Russian.
