Continuing and expanding on the adventure, steampunkery and general Victorian madness of The Strange Affair of Spring Heeled Jack Hodder’s protagonists Sir Francis Burton and his assistant poet Algernon Swinburne deal with catastrophic threats to "life as we know it". A seemingly routine robbery leads to a dubious claim on an aristocrat’s estate and quickly morphs into wraith-induced rioting in the streets of London. Haunted mansions, terrifying visits to the madhouse Bedlam, and missing diamonds are all part of the journey to expose a plot that both threatens the British Empire and could create international conflict leading to world war. It’s all resolved rather nicely but, thankfully, the book ends with a clear to-be-continued note. Excellent! Check our Catalog
