Merula Merriweather has left Victorian London for Dartmoor with fellow zoologist Lord Raven Royston. The trip offers a unique treat, as they'll be staying with a friend with a collection of rare zoological specimens - including a kraken. But all is not right when they arrive. Their host's maid has vanished and the townspeople blame him, claiming that his specimens are alive and roam the moors at night. Merula and Raven are sceptical - then they find several specimen jars empty. Where is the missing girl? The pair are determined to find out, no matter what monstrous horrors they uncover.

“Enigmatic, intelligent detectives, a community steeped in folklore, an undercurrent of criminal activity and gruesome murder.”

This is my first’ Merriweather and Royston mystery’. This is a standalone mystery, and there is sufficient backstory to place the characters, and their relationship in this story, but if you can, read book one first.... More

“An enjoyable read”

A smartly written historical thriller in the vein of Arthur Conan Doyle. There are plenty of red herrings in this investigation into murder, suspicion and superstition amongst the moors of Dartmoor.
