Good News, Bad News

by David Wolstencroft

Good news is that this is a page-turning spy romp. Bad news is it comes to an end. Good news is that it's a happy ending. Bad news is that to believe that it is a happy ending means that you are nuts. Good news is that the author might write another novel. Bad news is that means he won't write Spooks.

Extract

Steadman's increasing interest in the lower forms of British eighteenth-century life had bled into his daily work. His lectures were sprinkled with whispers of murders and mayhem, of perversions and hints of the occult, of untoward happenings in dark corners and of guts spilling from the hanging gardens of Newgate. Thus seasoned, his lectures were often standing room only.
