Devil in the Smoke Adventure for The Great Detective

Devil in the Smoke

An Adventure for The Great Detective
Recounted by Mr Justin Richards

Digital only released 18th December

Madame Vastra, the fabled Lizard Woman of Paternoter Row, knew death in many shapes and forms. But perhaps one of the most bizarre of these was death by snow…

On a cold day in December, two young boys, tired of sweeping snow from the workhouse yard, decide to build a snowman – and are confronted with a strange and grisly mystery. In horrified fascination, they watch as their snowman begins to bleed…

The search for answers to this impossible event will plunge Harry into the most hazardous – and exhilarating – adventure of his life. He will encounter a hideous troll. He will dine with a mysterious parlour maid. And he will help The Great Detective, Madame Vastra, save the world from the terrifying Devil in the Smoke.

    On a cold day in December, two young boys, tired of sweeping snow from the workhouse yard, decide to build a snowman – and are confronted with a lovely new Dr Who book. It is only then that Digital doesn’t mean anything yet so they carry on…

    Sorry Mr. Justin Richards, but we want a physical book!

    For my birthday (24th Jan) I am hoping to get a Amazon Kindle Fire HD, and I plan on buying this and the Melody Malone one released earlier this year, are there anymore of these digital books I do not know of?

      Because it is cheaper to sell it as an e-book than printing loads of copies.
