The Book of Lies from Spike Productions on Vimeo.

Guernsey born author Mary Horlock visits numerous key locations around the island illustrating why she has based her latest novel in Guernsey and gives an insight into the loves and lives of the principal characters. Spike was commissioned by exclusive London publishing house Cannongate to deliver a moody, provocative film to promote the launch of the book with retail heavyweight Amazon. This style of film is a common sales tool these days but at the time it was one of the first films of its kind on the Amazon website and helped to push Mary’s novel to the top of the best seller list.
