Devil In The Smoke E-Book

Hot on the heels of  'The Angel's Kiss' - A Melody Malone Mystery, BBC Books release  'Devil In The Smoke' by Justin Richards on 18th December 2012 priced at £1.99 . The story focuses on an adventure for an unlikely trio of detectives - The Lizard Woman, The Troll and The Parlour Maid. Going by the synopsis, the book appears to be set prior to the Christmas episode 'The Snowmen'

Madame Vastra, the fabled Lizard Woman of Paternoter Row, knew death in many shapes and forms. But perhaps one of the most bizarre of these was death by snow…

On a cold day in December, two young boys, tired of sweeping snow from the workhouse yard, decide to build a snowman – and are confronted with a strange and grisly mystery. In horrified fascination, they watch as their snowman begins to bleed…

The search for answers to this impossible event will plunge Harry into the most hazardous – and exhilarating – adventure of his life. He will encounter a hideous troll. He will dine with a mysterious parlour maid. And he will help The Great Detective, Madame Vastra, save the world from the terrifying Devil in the Smoke.
