As Shadows Fall

By J.D. Adamsson

Fantasy | eBook


As the latest of a string of young murder victims is brought into the mortuary at Hammersmith in London, pathology technician Gideon Hartford sets out on a mission to stop the perpetrator. But there’s more to these crimes than meets the eye. There’s more to Gideon as well, far more than even he knows. Gideon relates his tale from a rooftop above London. How he comes to be there is learnt throughout; from the London of the depressed 30s, the Blitz, through to the present, the years of his mysterious past unfold as he recounts how he pursues the killer. Or is the killer pursuing him? His revelations of this alternative view of the Capital are dark and shocking, for beneath the rushing feet and self-absorbed lives of the people of the city is a world unknown, where living shadows rule, presided over by an ancient elite whose power stretches back into antiquity. Part detective procedural, part contemporary urban fantasy, "As Shadows Fall" introduces us to a new and addictive anti-hero, the latest to tread the time-honoured streets of London.
