Stephen Laws – Spectre (NEL, 1994, originally Souvenir, 1986)
They were inseparable: six boys and one girl who’d grown up together in the back streets of Newcastle. Now the terraces are long gone, but Richard Eden has his memories – and one special photograph. All that is left of their joy – and betrayal …
Suddenly, impossibly, one by one the images begin to fade, as if his friends had never existed.
Something is stalking the Chapter – closing in for the kill. With each hideous death, another image fades from the photograph. Some spectre from the past, some horror they have unwittingly released, is out there on the darkened streets.Hunting them down.
They can run, but this time there is nowhere they can hide .. .
