A blood-chilling story with the search for Frankenstein at its heart. When orphaned Billy, a miserably poor and hungry street urchin, comes across Mister Creecher, a man of great size and sinister intent, his life is turned upside down. Soon the two of them are off on a terrifying adventure travelling ever further north as they seek out the evil Victor Frankenstein. Rich in atmosphere and terror.

Mister Creecher Synopsis

Billy is a street urchin, pickpocket and petty thief. Mister Creecher is a monstrous giant of a man who terrifies all he meets. Their relationship begins as pure convenience. But a bond swiftly develops between these two misfits as their bloody journey takes them ever northwards on the trail of their target ...Victor Frankenstein.

Mister Creecher Press Reviews

'A brilliant counterpoint to Frankenstein, compellingly written. Chris Priestley goes from strength to strength' - Chris Riddell

'A dark, moving, creepy, funny tale about the making of a famous monster ... only not the one you think it'll be. Splendid gothic stuff' - Kim Newman, author of Nightmare Movies

'A wonderfully nightmarish journey of the imagination - old-fashioned storytelling at its best' - Daily Mail

'The gradual build-up of horror ... is exquisitely done. My insides were still untangling themselves hours after I had closed the book'
Sunday Telegraph
