THE CRIMES OF THE ANCIENT TIME TRAVELLER
When scholar Brendan Doyle is flown across the Atlantic to give a lecture on Samuel Taylor Coleridge the last thing he expects is to meet the man himself. Nor does he anticipate being stranded penniless in the teeming, thieving London of 1810.
Every effort to return to the present is thwarted – until he hears someone whistling a refrain from 'Yesterday'.
"The best fantasy writer to appear in decades"
"A roller-coaster ride through a world teeming with characters ranging from the grotesque to the fiendish: tremendous fun"
CITY LIMI TS
"An adventure novel, an impressively intricate time-travel conundrum, a supernatural thriller, a literary mystery, a horror story, plotted with manic fervour, executed with exhilarating dexterity at breakneck speed . . .A virtuoso performance"
