"NOTHING LESS THAN THE WICKEDEST MAN IN LONDON..."It is October 1859, and notorious philanderer Lord Geoffrey Thraxton cares for nothing except his own amusement. After humiliating an odious literary critic and surviving the resulting duel, he boasts of his contempt for mortality, and insults the attending physician. It is a mistake he will come to regret. When Thraxton becomes obsessed with a mysterious woman who appears to him one fog-shrouded night in Highgate Cemetery, he unwittingly provides the doctor with the perfect means to punish a man with no fear of death...

MEDIA REVIEWS
"For those who love a tawdry Victorian mystery or romance novel, The Angel of Highgate is good fun." - Fangirl Nation

"Everything I expect from Victorian fiction and more...brilliant entertainment!" - Rising Shadow

"Lovely descriptions...and well drawn characters" - Reviewing the Evidence

"I found it hard to put this book down...Entwistle does a brilliant job of evoking Victorian London and it certainly is not a sanitized version of the city. It definitely smells, from the horse dung in the roads to the open middens in the less salubrious parts of town." - Lit Reactor

"THE ANGEL OF HIGHGATE is as lush and charming as it is morbid, and the masterful fusion is pulled off with prose that is as rich as the more florid verbiage of classic lit, while also being as smooth and readable as other contemporary fiction." - The Blood Shed

"This book is as thrilling as any horror fiction you could get from Poe or Shelly two centuries ago." - Atomic Moo
