Featuring Honoré Lechasseur and Emily Blandish.
‘Goodbye, little Emily.’
April 1938, and a shadowy figure attends an impromptu burial in Shoreditch, London. His name is Honoré Lechasseur. After a chance encounter with the mysterious Catherine Howkins, he’s had advance warning that his friend Emily Blandish was going to die. But is forewarned necessarily forearmed? And just how far is he willing to go to save Emily’s life?
Because Honoré isn’t the only person taking an interest in Emily Blandish – she’s come to the attention of the Albino, one of the new breed of gangsters surfacing in post-rationing London. And the only life he cares about is his own.
Part mystery, part detective story, part dark fantasy, part science fiction… original adventures in time and space.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Dale Smith’s past work is detailed on his website, www.dalesmithonline.com. There’s really not much left that isn’t on the website. Hang on, he’ll have a think.
Dale Smith knows a really good joke about two racehorses and a greyhound. But it’s too long to go into here. He nearly spoke to Russell T Davies in a newsagents in Chorlton. But didn’t. He got confused about how to introduce himself.
Oh! And he’s always lied about what his first professionally published work was: when he was in junior school, he had a poem published in the local newspaper about American Indians. The poem was, not the newspaper. He grew up in Leicester: how weird would it be to have a newspaper about American Indians in Leicester?
He has now learnt to call American Indians, Native Americans.
