'Among the most important writers of contemporary British horror.' -Ramsey Campbell

The Faceless

The Faceless.  My second novel, published by Solaris.

In the Lancashire town of Kempforth, people are vanishing. Mist hangs heavy in the streets, and in those mists move the masked figures the local kids call the Spindly Men. When two-year-old Roseanne Trevor disappears, Detective Chief Inspector Renwick vows to stop at nothing until she finds her. In Manchester, terrifying visions summon TV psychic Allen Cowell and his sister Vera back to the town they swore they'd left forever. And local historian Anna Mason pieces together a history of cruelty and exploitation almost beyond belief, born out of the horrors of war - while in the decaying corridors and lightless rooms of a long-abandoned hospital above town, something terrible is waiting for them all.

'A modern masterpiece of British horror... the must read horror novel of the year so far.' -Ginger Nuts Of Horror.

The Faceless is an excellent horror novel ... Absolutely essential reading for anyone after a scary read that carries on its work long after you’ve put the book down.' -Graeme's Fantasy Book Review.

'Proof that [Bestwick] is one of the best writers- of any genre- currently plying their trade...a perfect combination of style and substance.  The book is beautifully written, yes. It has a great plot, yes. Most importantly though, it's scary as hell.' -Dark Musings.

'Horror fans must read this book...  The Faceless propels Bestwick deservedly into the top flight of unflinching horror genius.' -Morpheus Tales.

'A superbly realised novel.' -This Is Horror.

'Stark, harsh, vicious and creepy as hell. I seriously cannot recommend this highly enough. Bestwick is a real force to be reckoned with in horror literature.' -Mass Movement Magazine.

'It's refreshing to read something as original as The Faceless... Bestwick has produced a piece of work streets ahead of his peers.' -SciFiNow.
