A Novella by Angela L. Garratt
An intriguing tale of greed, suspense, love and the paranormal.
When Jecepi is killed by the infamous Henry Schnieber and his henchmen for not paying protection money, the town’s people of Greeley decide enough is enough and devise a plan so shocking that it leaves a scar on time itself.
People are being killed in a mysterious way, as seen as there is no rational explanation to their deaths; they are put down to war crimes.
The mysterious deaths have returned and victims are turning up burned beyond recognition. The press are calling it Spontaneous Human Combustion (SHC). So, DCI Mason puts DI Simon Jackson and DI Collette Taylor on the case. They discover a truth so much more disturbing and much, much more dangerous.
The Ghost of Henry Schnieber was written by Author/poet Angela L. Garratt. She is the former editor of the Walsall Poetry Society and has been published in many different places including the Black Country Bugle and the National Poetry Magazine Star Tips for Writers. The Ghost of Henry Schnieber is a 74 page novella and Angela’s second book. The first, Innocent Spirits is a full length novel also based on the paranormal.
Angela say’s “The Ghost of Henry Schnieber was a pleasure to write, it is a dark story with a sting in its tail and will be enjoyed by anyone who has a love for the darker side of literature.” She continues, “I have more stories in the pipeline and I am planning on publishing my next book in Spring 2016, it is called The Desk and it is another dark novella.”
