9780091950132: The Kingdom of Bones

It was my friend, Bram Stoker, who told me of the legend of the Wanderer a man who made a bargain with the devil himself, trading his soul for forbidden knowledge and eternal life.

Once I would have dismissed such tales as mere fancy but I knew what I had seen. And there is no mind so open as that of desperate man.

A dark Gothic Victorian thriller, The Kingdom of Bones unfolds in a twilight world of music halls, boxing booths, and travelling theatrical shows; and pits a formidable Pinkerton detective against a man who fears more than justice.

Review:

"Only bad thing about his books is that they eventually end. Brilliant." ( Jonny Lee Miller)

"Vividly set in England and America during the booming industrial era of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, this stylish thriller conjures a perfect demon to symbolize the age and its appetites..." ( The New York Times)

"From its attention-grabbing opening, this period thriller moves back and forth in time to tell a compelling story of a man battling against what he believes to be demonic forces … [Gallagher] is brilliantly successful at evoking the shifting, transient world of travelling theatres and cheap carnivals that provide the backdrop to his twisting tale" ( Sunday Times)

"If thriller-reading were a sin, Stephen Gallagher would be responsible for my ultimate damnation." ( Dean R. Koontz)

Book Description:

A dark Gothic Victorian thriller in the spirit of Sherlock Holmes
