Christopher William Hill

The second in Christopher William Hill’s Tales from Schwartzgarten series, The Woebegone Twins was published by Orchard on 3rd October. 
When twins Greta and Feliks lose their beloved Aunt Gisela to a poisoned marzipan cake and are sent to the ill-omened Schwartzgarten Reformatory for Maladjusted Children it seems their fate is sealed… that is until they are rescued by the glamorous and wealthy Olga Van Veenen, a fabulous children’s author. The two twins are grateful but something tells them that Olga’s motives are not entirely genuine… 
The Woebegone Twins is a tale of murder and mayhem, fact and fiction.The heroes are horrid. The plots are peculiar. And things are not always as they seem.If you prefer cleavers to kittens and fiends to fairies…then welcome to the gruesomely funny tales from Schwartzgarten.
