From multi-award-winning fantasy writer Tim Powers: a secret history of 19th-century London.

'Tim Powers is a brilliant writer... Wonderfully original' William Gibson

London, 1862: a city of stinking fog and dark, winding streets.

Adelaide McKee, a former prostitute, arrives on the doorstep of veterinary doctor John Crawford, a man she met once seven years earlier and the father of her only child, long presumed dead. She has recently learned that the girl lives - but her life and soul are sought by a ghostly vampire. And this is no ordinary spirit; the bloodthirsty wraith is that of John Polidori, Lord Byron's doctor...

Sweeping from high society to grimy slums, from elegant West End salons to the pre-Roman catacombs beneath St. Paul's, Hide Me Among the Graves blends the historical and the supernatural in a unique and dazzling novel.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Superbly written, wonderfully imagined. * The Times *
Tim Powers is a highly talented, much-lauded writer who does a terrific job of grounding the darkest and wildest of vampiric fantasies in carefully researched historical and literary reality. Intelligent, gripping and terrifying to boot. * Daily Mail *
Powers conjures a rich mythology based on vampire lore [blending] literature, history and the supernatural. Powers is one of the best fantasy authors, here at the very top of his game. * Financial Times *
Powers' sense of time and place is impeccable, and his characters - real and imaginary - leap off the page as the story gallops towards a thrilling finale. A long time coming, Hide Me Among the Graves has been worth the wait. * Guardian *
Powers's speciality is secret supernatural histories of the world that offer far more plausible explanations for everything than, say, Dan Brown, and are conceptually far wittier. He is an intelligent, emotionally complex writer with a taste for elegantly conceived nightmare. * Independent *
Dickens as directed by David Lynch... both clever and fun. * SFX Magazine *
