Victorian London drips with danger.
There's a killer on the prowl, and only one man can save the city.
Unfortunately, he's bickering with a talking duck right now.
Maybe later?

This book was co-written by two authors of considerable repute in the webfiction world -- MCM (of The Vector, Fission Chips, etc) and Andy Fanton (of Lord Likely) -- so if you like either or both of them, you’re bound to like this book.
