DANCE OF THE SERPENTS


DANCE OF THE SERPENTS

OSCAR DE MURIEL    Book Number: 89791    Product format: Hardback

December 1889 and there have been many bad days in Edinburgh police's subdivision 'The Commission for the Elucidation of Unsolved Cases Presumably Related to the Odd and Ghostly'. But today is surely the worst because the exiled English Inspector Ian Frey and his Scottish boss 'Nine-Nails' McGray are summoned to a meeting in the middle of the night with the Prime Minister himself. He tells them that Queen Victoria, the most powerful person in the world, wants them both dead and that to be pardoned they must embark on a mission so dangerous that they might be saving Her Majesty the job of executing them. Because this case ties together the dark history of the Pendle witches with the tragic case of McGray's own sister to a conspiracy within the highest office in the land. Another spellbinding mix of history, horror and humour with a bit of historical gossip thrown in the mix, de Muriel never disappoints with his stories of skulduggery. 421pp.
