It’s November, 1879, and the mist-filled streets are not as empty as they appear. Against a backdrop of exploding heads, bullying geese, haunted gas lamps, and sinister, other-worldly terrors, a hapless urchin searches for his lost brother, a gentleman discovers the infuriating complications of love, and a flower girl joins forces with the meanest beast in London. However, as they stumble through each horrific event, one thing becomes painfully clear: there is Murder at the Scrambling Dragon!

(The Carnival Keepers, #2)

Murder at the Scrambling Dragon (The Carnival Keepers #2)The streets of London make a perfectly sinister backdrop for murder and mayhem as evil lurks in the shadows and the mist hides more than meets the eye. Amber Gulley is back with another bone-chilling tale of chaos and death in MURDER AT THE SCRAMBLING DRAGON.

It’s the late nineteenth century, life is harsh, but on Cat’s Hole Lane, life can be surreal. Street urchins, cognizant cockroaches and a mysterious green fog that hides watching eyes, the paranoia of opium enhanced imaginations or something … more?

Who hides in the cellar of THE SCRAMBLING DRAGON and why? What hides behind “the mask” that some see as a necessity?

Never have the eerily foggy streets of London seemed so evil, never have Londoners exposed the downsides of their lives so freely.

Once again, Amber Gulley delivers tales within tales, jagged slices of lives in turmoil and some of the darkest of thoughts and deeds. Don’t expect to relax into this world, forget looking for the silver lining behind the dark thunderclouds, just enjoy the darkness and intrigue of Ms. Gulley’s wickedly fascinating imagination!

I received a complimentary copy from Amber Gulley!
