Description

"Both Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Who would feel right at home in this tale that begs to be made into a movie. A thoroughly enjoyable romp. . . .Simply smashing." -Kirkus Reviews "A terrific blend of horror and mystery . . . a quick read packed with twists, turns, and just enough gore to keep things interesting. A great choice for horror fans." - School Library Journal"Suspense and adventure in abundance make for a thrilling read." -Publishers Weekly "A rip-snorter of an adventure novel . . . super-fun non-literary flat-out fast-paced adventure." -Bookshelves of Doom (online)What starts as an ordinary picket-pocketing incident in Victorian London unites three teens against a madman. Eddie is the pickpocket; George is an assistant at the British Museum; Elizabeth has a nose for trouble-and all of them are being hunted by Augustus Lorimore. Lorimore is a sinister factory owner, a villain bent on reanimating the dead, both humans and dinosaurs-and one of each is already terrorizing the streets of London. It's up to Eddie, George, and Elizabeth to stop Lorimore's monsters . . . or die trying. Recalling the classic horror of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein and the gothic chills of Caleb Carr's The Alienist, Justin Richard's novel is a historic thrill ride that will keep readers on the edge of their seats until the very last page.
