FOR THE COMING
Here at the rookery we are nothing if not diverse, in fact diversity is the touchstone of our business plan- or would be if we had one- letting the cat out of the bag there!
This is a roundabout way of announcing that our next publication will be a novel. An exciting steampunk mystery, the first in a sequence of novels featuring Captain James Owen, ex of His Majesties Cheshire Regiment, and now working for the Special Investigations Department in Whitehall.
The SID was created by Charles Forte for the newly elected Liberal government in the early 1900’s. Its brief is to investigate happenings too bizarre for the local police. And there is nothing stranger than the death of Julius Richmond who drowned in a paving stone. Your eyes do not deceive you, the actually stone liquefied and smothered the innocent mill worker on the night of the 20th September 1926, in Frome in Somersetshire.
There will be more information in the coming weeks. For now I shall repeat my warning- prepare for the coming of The Jowler.
