Product Description

Product Description

Der Schwarze Engel - the mythical black angel of death, of evil, of sorrow. Or of something darker than all three...

Danny has been missing for six years, when one night, drunk and confused, Stephen thinks he sees him reflected in a bar mirror, like an apparition from the past.

But surely he has imagined it? Danny haloed and burning above him like an avenging angel. Danny rescuing him from a midnight street in a sinister, dark car. Danny smelling as sweet as lemons and dressed all in black silk, as dry and caustic as Lucifer himself. Those drunken visions can't be true, can they?

But Rab believes they must be, Stephen fears they might be, and Conley knows they are. Danny is back. And now there is one overriding question burning in all their minds. What has he been doing during those mysterious missing years? And with whom?

Vulnerable, lost, and deep in mourning, Danny is ripe for the picking. But that shadowy other is ever-present, like an unspoken third, a revenant determined to be at the party, ruining their fun. Is the 'Schwarze Engel' real, or just a figment of Danny's diseased imagination? And, more importantly, can anyone finally set him free from it?

More About the Author

A SHORT AUTOBIOGRAPHY of CHANCERY STONE

How can you tell a story in a paragraph ?

How do you tell a life in a paragraph?

Do I give you bare facts? Born - none of your business. Place of origin - East Kilbride. Parents - yes, two.

Or maybe the creative version. Didn't read my first book till about the age of eleven/twelve (don't know exactly, because I can't remember much childhood). First two books, The Genie Hottabych and The Rose and the Ring. Also read every fairy tale I could get hold of and was lucky enough to read Victorian versions, not bowdlerised modern versions. Loved all those evil parents and threatening places. Loved the melodramatic orphan stories in The Judy. (Now, I have got to be a rarity here. I actually wanted to be an orphan.) Wasn't allowed to read The Jackie or teen/women's magazines as these were "Capitalist Pornography". Once unwittingly bought a copy of OZ in the street in Glasgow when I was a teenager which my mother made me dispose of "before my father saw it". Deeply ironic as it was destined to become a very valuable rare edition, and my mother did have that greedy little materialistic edge.

Fell into The Citizen's Theatre and its obsession with subversive drama. Saw a lot of nude men and learned about the Marquis de Sade whose works cost me a fortune, bought from abroad.

Do I need to go on through detective fiction, horror, magic realism, the classics, Jacobean drama, far too much bad theatre.......?

I could list my jobs. Although I tried to avoid them, I worked randomly when it couldn't be helped. Selling radar spares, running restaurants, a sweet shop, a newsagents, debt collecting, nude modelling, dancing, bar tending, filing clerk, cleaning.... You get the picture.

Or my lifestyle. Over 17 different houses. Lived in Glasgow, London, Cumbria, Aberdeen, Orkney, Fraserburgh, Manchester, Morecambe. Never married, never had children (always swore as a child I wouldn't and everybody said, "Ah, you're saying that now, but you'll change your tune." Well, they were WRONG). Kept cats, went walking, danced, was a party animal, lived in seclusion, never did drugs, once got stoned on tranquilisers and sexually assaulted a priest, don't smoke, had my first cigarette on stage, don't drink, once sat outside in the most exquisite rain I ever saw so drunk I couldn't stand, eat too much and never diet.

Does any of this tell you anything? Does all of it tell you something ?

I always feel people's work tells you all you need to know about them, even if it's only that they are very convincing liars.

So... my biography.

Read DANNY and know me......

5.0 out of 5 stars The New Testament 17 Dec 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
The second installment to the greatest story ever told, DANNY 2, The Revenant, has arrived. The finest written characters in literature are back, and they're as good as they ever have been.

As the characters (and readers) are still reeling from the events in book 1, each character has continued in their own private lives - some more surprisingly than others. However, much as they may think they have grown, when they come back together the spell is cast again.

Book 2 can be seen from two very different angles, hence the two covers, and both are completely accurate at the same time. Danny's return is like a fox rampaging through a house full of chickens. Danny finds his admirers again, along with some new ones, lures them in and enslaves them but, as always, he's setting them up for the kill. Even though they know they're playing with a huge ball of fire, they just can't resist Danny's own special brand of magic. It's the readers' job to work out what's actually going on - as it always is. We get the chance to play pyschological detective again.

However, at the same time, in book 2, Danny is walking the world with his guts hanging out while the vultures circle him, waiting to swoop when he falls. This may not sound appealing, but imagine the sexiest walking dead, with the most attractive vultures around, and the devouring is indeed a metaphor for what they'll do when they get their hands on him.

As in DANNY 1, we see personal strength of psychotic proportions, personal survival above all else, and the reader delves ever deeper into the characters' past, unveiling some new mysteries, appearing to conclude others and concreting some assumptions made in book 1.

Format:Paperback
In Danny 2.1 Die Schwarze Engel, the second installment of the brilliant and daring Danny Quadrilogy, we jump six years ahead in time. Danny has returned home, and immediately old and new friends vie for a space in his bed and/or heart. Danny, increasingly restless and haunted by past events, dances on a fine line between sanity and madness. Trouble compounds with the arrival of Harry Greaves, yet another policeman with a hidden personal agenda. When Greaves gets possession of Ian's old diaries, Danny has no choice but to submit to his outrageous demands.

With compelling new characters--notably teenage twins Andy and Gerry, and Donald Sutherland, Greaves' young sidekick--there's potential for Danny to finally cut his ties to his twisted family and to move on. Can he find a love to fill the void his brother left behind?

Unlike volume one, volume 2.1 gives us direct insight into Danny's psyche. As we learn more about his feelings and personal demons, and get a few glimpses of pivotal childhood events, we understand better what drives him, and we come to ache for him in his devastating loneliness.

As Greaves tightens his net of deceit around Danny until there seems no way out, everyone else fights over Danny like dogs over a bone. The tension grows and erupts in a shocking ending. I dare anyone not to immediately reach for the next volume--it's as impossible to resist as Danny himself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Redefines grief as we know it. 1 Mar 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Danny "Die Schwarze Engel" Book two in the Quadrilogy makes you redefine grief in a whole new way. Danny tries without success to come to terms with his brothers loss (John, Ian?) don't want to many spoilers in case you haven't read Danny Hope House. {Definatly read it first} I have to say the story gets more powerful with each book in the quadrilogy. Chancery weaves such passion,angst and drama so beautifully it is near impossible to put the book down for any length of time. As with the first Book 'Danny" there are very dark and troubling habits Danny uses in a attempt to come to terms with his grief. Whose to say what each one of us would do in his position. Not only his loss and grief, but to label oneself a murderer on top of it. I felt Danny pull at my heart strings in both volumes as the victim with uncontrolable hungers he fed in a attempt to find a measure of escape within himself. This is also a two plus time read for me, I have no problem reading Chancery's work several times as new discoveries are made each time. I also have on kindle and paperback backup should whatever should happen to my kindle. If you've read Hope House you already are breathless for each new edition to unveil. This one won't disappoint.

1.0 out of 5 stars Did you run that title through google translate? 12 Mar 2013
By K. Meyer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
It's sad when not only the writing itself is bad, but the author doesn't even have a friend who can translate three simple words for them into German.

That poor gender-confused angel.
