The Vanity Rooms
Peter Luther Other books by Peter Luther
"Your hunger for celebrity is merely a pang of the appetite you will acquire. Your obsessionwith fame will turn to insanity."
In Revolutionary Paris a chapter of highly-talented artists railed against a fate that had denied them the recognition they deserved. In a seductive suite of rooms hidden in Cardiff Bay, they re-discovered their ambition.
Now a ruthless game of life and death is being played out through an automated eighteenth-century chess game. The players are Kris, a struggling, self-deluded actor who has inherited an addictive mobile phone with mind-changing apps; Fabrienne, a beautiful but scarred recluse with a violent, secret history; and Honeyman - flawed, damaged, and their only hope for salvation.
