BROOKWOOD GLADES OF REMEMBRANCE – 450 ACRES OF LIVING DEATH!

Private Dective Clyde Beatty’s suspicions are aroused when he is approached by the lovely Angela Meredith to investigate the circumstances surrounding her father’s death. And when an autopsy reveals the hideous truth about her father’s corpse, Beatty sets forth on a macabre trail of conspiracy and murder that leads back to Brookwood Cemetery. There, in the vast Victorian city of the dead, amidst ancient mausoleums and sepulchral spires, Beatty stalks an ungodly prey. While beneath the hallowed ground, in subterranean catacombs, Blackwood’s deadliest secret of all holds the key to Beatty’s life… or death.

“Feverish gaslight gothic that’s as rich in atmosphere as it is in ghoulish doings” – Kirkus Reviews

“A dark, exotic Gothic thriller… Excellent!” – Booklist
