Where is the Doctor? Everyone is hunting him.

Honoré Lechasseur, a time sensitive “fixer”, is hired by mystery woman Emily Blandish to find him. Lechasseur discovers that the Doctor is, in fact, a semi-mythical figure who has appeared off and on throughout Earth’s history. But what is his connection with London in 1949? And why is a mysterious group seeking “the cabinet of light” – a device somehow connected with the Doctor.

Lechasseur is about to discover that following in the Doctor’s footsteps can be a difficult task.
