Chloe was in the audience, all those years ago, when the actress died.  Now they are putting that show on again, and that is not all that is coming back.

I am DustChloe works as an usher in the theatre where she used to rehearse as a child, and meet with her friends when the theatre was closed and all was quiet.  Now memories of those days are coming back to haunt her.  What she and her friends got up to that no-one else knows about.

This is a story of ghosts, whether real or imagined is up to the reader to decide.  It is also of love and the magic of the theatre.   The characters are great, but is one of them a murderer?

As with all of Louise Beech’s books you feel that she has made a story around her personal life experiences, and it is this that makes her books so wonderful.  By the time I was halfway though the book I was desperate to know how it ends.  I was not disappointed, the ending is one of the most powerful endings of any novel I have read.  

5*s from me, because as well as being a great story, there are insights into human lives and why people do the things they do.  And, of course, the ending is very memorable and totally wonderful.  Thank you Louise Beech for another wonderful read.
