"This is a ghost story and while it is dark, atmospheric and full of death, what I loved was its life and colour. Setterfield is brilliant at character and setting and can make even a woollen mill fascinating and utterly riveting. A rags -to-riches tale with a spooky twist." (Wendy Holden DAILY MAIL)
"Bellman & Black: A Ghost Story is the second book by Diane Setterfield, and what a talented writer she is. This is an extraordinary book that defies genre. Part of the beauty of it derives from the fact you're unsure whether it is a ghost story or not... The research is meticulous and yet the many facts are blended so easily into the narrative that the reader hardly notices just how much authentic information Setterfield manages to impart, a talent she shares with Hilary Mantel." (IRISH INDEPENDENT)
The Thirteenth Tale was a huge worldwide bestseller, and it has taken many years for a second novel from Diane Satterfield to be published. Was it worth the wait? Absolutely. Bellman & Black is a much finer novel: more mature, more accomplished, more wide ranging and multi-layered and much, much more than a simple ghost story. If there is any justice in the book world, it will achieve greater critical acclaim. (HISTORICAL NOVELIST SOCIETY)
"If you want an original take on the gothic novel, pick up a copy of BELLMAN AND BLACK... The prose is precise, The place comes alive on the page although this is also an abstract world, like a fairytale." (BIG ISSUE)
"A book that lingers after the last page is turned." (EDINBURGH EVENING NEWS)
Having read and loved Diane Setterfield's first novel, THE THIRTEENTH TALE, I had high expectations for BELLMAN & BLACK- expectations that Diane Setterfield more than exceeded! BELLMAN & BLACK is the sort of story that you can't put down once you start and yet you don't want it to end either... BELLMAN & BLACK is nothing short of mesmerizing! (FRESH FICTION)
This spine-tingling ghost story set in Victorian times is perfect for Halloween... Creepily compulsive. (PETERBOROUGH EVENING TELEGRAPH)
The book is full of beautifully illustrative imagery that conjure up some startling and unsettling scenes making this a perfect Halloween read... a masterpiece of storytelling. (THE SHELF)
"A subtle and unsettling tale... a good read for the darkening nights." (OXFORD MAIL)
The long-awaited new fiction from the author of THE THIRTEENTH TALE is a haunting Victorian tale of love, loss and the mystery of death.
As a boy, William Bellman commits one small cruel act that appears to have unforseen and terrible consequences. The killing of a rook with his catapult is soon forgotten amidst the riot of boyhood games. And by the time he is grown, with a wife and children of his own, he seems indeed, to be a man blessed by fortune.
Until tragedy strikes, and the stranger in black comes, and William Bellman starts to wonder if all his happiness is about to be eclipsed. Desperate to save the one precious thing he has left, he enters into a bargain. A rather strange bargain, with an even stranger partner, to found a decidedly macabre business.
And Bellman & Black is born.
