THE THRILLING CLIMAX TO THE CHILLING TRILOGY, TALES FROM THE WYRD MUSEUM.
Even as Neil Chapman and little Edie Dorkins make their weary journey back from Glastonbury Tor, things within the Wyrd Museum are beginning to stir. Something has disturbed the slumbering shadows and presently the gloom-filled collections will ring to the sound of unquiet footsteps as the spectral unrest mounts.
Is Miss Ursula Webster to be trusted, or is she concealing yet another fatal secret? And who is the mysterious ghost hunter haunting their every move. Can the approaching darkness be averted or has the Final Doom descended upon the world at last?

The final book in the chilling Tales From the Wyrd Museum, following hot on the heels of The Woven Path and The Raven's Knot, is a thrilling conclusion to an excellent series, and is also a great "stand- alone" book for anyone who has a love of powerful images, masterful wordsmithery and mysterious and passionate drama.
The Wyrd Museum is located in a dark and dingy alley-way in London's East End, and cared for by the strange Webster sisters. But something has come to disturb the slumbering shadows and watchful walls of the forbidding museum and Miss Ursula Webster prepares to fight to the death with the strange new threat. Neil Chapman, caught in the unforgiving Web of Fate, is drawn into the battle, but is there really anyway he can stop the tide of time and Doom?
A cracking good read, bone-chilling in the extreme and edge-of-your-chair exciting to the bitter end, The Fatal Strand is the kind of book that older readers who enjoy being frightened out of their wits for pleasure will clamour to read. Certainly not one for the fainthearted, but a darn good read from Robin Jarvis whose remarkable imagination coupled with his extraordinary storytelling talent will make him a favourite with anyone who loves a good fright. (Ages 11 and over). --Susan HarrisonReview:
‘For lovers of extravagant words and action charged with mystery and passion, Mr Jarvis must be hard to beat.’
