Synopsis

Ever since a certain Christmas Eve many years ago, Ebenezer Scrooge has become known all over London as the happiest, kindest and most generous of all men, always ready with a smile and a cheerful remark for his fellow begins, especially at the most festive time of year. But this Christmas Eve there is a blasphemous threat abroad in the city: corpses are rising from their graves and attacking people, spreading a deadly disease. As he, Bob Cratchit and their companions fight their way through the fogbound streets, their footsteps silenced by the blood- spattered snow, he realises that if they are goign to survive he will have to bury his nice and gentlemanly self, and learn how to be a black-hearted, mean-spirited scoundrel once more.

About the author

Charles Dickens (1812-1870) was the author of fourteen completed novels, many short stories and plays, and a vast array of journalism. Not only the bestselling and most prolific but also the best-loved author of his day. Dicken's death from apoplexy at the age of 58 sparked nationwide mourning, and he was interred after a state funeral at Westminster Abbey. Bruno Vincent's humour books (several co-authored with Jon Butler) have sold more than a quarter of a million copies, twice appeared on the Sunday Times bestseller lists, and been translated into nine languages (including American). He is also the author of a volume of horror stories for children set in a dark and twisted Dickensian world, Grisly Tales from Tumblewater, and its forthcoming sequel, School for Villians. This is their first collaboration.
