9780091950620: The Secret of Abdu El Yezdi: The Burton & Swinburne Adventures (Burton & Swinburne 4)

The Beast has been summoned, history will be unmade

Freshly knighted by King George V for discovering the source of the Nile, Sir Richard Francis Burton has been made an agent of the Crown.

His mission is twofold: solve a series of high profile disappearances and, even more astonishing, locate the spirit of a dead mystic, Abdu el Yezdi, who has served the Crown as an advisor since Queen Victoria was so monstrously assassinated.

Burton and Swinburne are back – pitted against a cabal of dangerous men, facing seemingly supernatural entities while fighting for their very existence...

Review:

"Serious literary fun as Mark Hodder vaults to the front of the new steampunk writers pack. Elaborately researched and name-checked, THE SECRET OF ABDU EL YEZDI races Victorian explorer Sir Richard Burton through a diabolically baffling maze of historical possiblities -- plus there's corsets and airships. Hard to imagine any lover of alternate British empires not being thoroughly amazed and entertained" ( K.W. Jeter)

"Great fun, thought-provoking, highly literate and beautifully written" ( Daily Mail)

Book Description:
