Synopsis

A dark satire set in Edinburgh, from the author of the highly-acclaimed The Pied Piper's Poison. * Mediocre PR consultant Charles Kidd might just have found his meal ticket. With brilliant, charming new client Peter Dexter's plans for the ultimate fringe spectacular at this year's Edinburgh Festival, it would appear that Charles finally has the chance to be somebody, to make a splash. * But in a city whose murky past is filled with graverobbers, mad, murderous scientists, charlatans and showmen, this particular image consultant would do well to look past the sheen of his new star customer, beyond a polished performance which cloaks a more sinister, manipulative purpose...* With consummate skill, Christopher Wallace weaves a tale full of invention, ambiguity, unease and menace.

Fast-forward to 1999, where this same device turns up being tested in public at showman Peter Dexter's "Resurrectionist Expression" performance, much to the horror of young Charles Kidd, Dexter's public relations guru.
