Casper Silk


Casper Silk, author of the literary suspense novels HOTEL NOIR and ECHO YEAR, has been called "cagey and poetic" and compared to F. Scott Fitzgerald, Thomas Mann, Graham Greene, P.D. James "on steroids" and J.G. Ballard.

Silk is the pseudonym of award-winning author Germaine Shames, whose works defy easy categorization, combining elements of literary and genre fiction, and straying from the straight-and-narrow of chronology into a kaleidoscopic striptease of the human soul.
