The Ripper Affair

Bannon and Clare: Book Three

By Lilith Saintcrow

  • Paperback
  • £8.99

Fast-paced, steampunk inspired urban fantasy adventure set in an alternate Victorian London, where detective duo Bannon and Clare will face treason, cannon fire and dark magic.

Sorcery. Treason. Madness. And, of course, murder most foul . . .

A shattering accident places Archibald Clare, mentath in the service of Britannia, in the care of Emma Bannon, sorceress Prime. Clare needs a measure of calm to repair his faculties of Logic and Reason. Without them, he is not his best. At all.

Unfortunately, calm and rest will not be found. There is a killer hiding in the sorcerous steam-hells of Londinium, murdering poor women of a certain reputation. A handful of frails murdered on cold autumn nights would make no difference . . . but the killings echo in the highest circles, and threaten to bring the Empire down in smoking ruins.

The game is afoot . . .
