Circus of Nightmares

Author(s): Conrad Jones

Location(s): Anglesey

Genre(s): Thriller

Era(s): Now

★★★★★ The draining of a pond on a construction site leads to a grim discovery which could answer the five-year-old question: what happened to a young couple last seen at the travelling circus?
The Circus of Nightmares is an Internet sensation pushing the boundaries of magic and illusion, blurring the lines between excitement and fear. It has become the most popular live show of its kind, but something travels with it. Something dark. Something sinister.
When they arrive unannounced on the beautiful island of Anglesey, Detective Inspector Alan Williams and his team uncover a series of sexual assaults reaching back decades. The evidence is clouded by the passing of time, but one thing is beyond clear, evil incarnate has arrived in his piece of paradise.
