Plex – the Scarlet Pimpernel of movie reviewing. He’s worked in the industry since the turn of the century, has a black book of contacts worth killing for, and isn’t afraid to give duff films both barrels. Harrison Ford called him ‘that little shit’ and he once trod on Johnny Depp’s foot. That’s just how he rolls.
After the death of his wife and child in fire, author Joseph Crone (Timothy Gibbs) travels to Barcelona to see his estranged brother and dying father, both former ministers who have alienated their congregations. Strangely, there's also the problem of ghostly apparitions showing up at 11:11pm outside their house and captured on video camera. As the days towards 11.11.11 tick away, Joseph becomes convinced that something evil comes his way.

Giovanni (Alberto Sordi) lives far beyond his means to provide for his wife's bodily needs (Gianna Maria Canale).

We’ve drawn the winners for our Black Mile competition – the first fifteen names out of the (virtual) sack have been notified. We’ve been blown away by the amount of entries – easily the most we have ever had. The success of the contest means we’re going to run another – and, since originality is not a strong point of ours, it’s going to offer the exact same prizes as the last one.
The winner will receive an overnight stay in The Soho Hotel, a funky hang-out slap bang in the middle of Soho (which is the setting for the novel). Runners-up will receive signed copies of the artwork for the novel (by the artist responsible for some of Bret Easton Ellis' UK covers), together with signed copies of Mark's previous novels.
