London 1902.

The esteemed paranormal investigation agency of

Lyons & Hound (est 1895) is called in to help solve the curious case of perhaps the most famous kidnapping in history.

As Professor Lyons and Mr Hound struggle to solve the diabolical diorama, they must delve into the dark and disturbing back streets, dim alleyways and dismal rookeries of the supernatural underworld of early Edwardian London; encountering along the way – gruesome Goblin gangs and

weird and wonderful Were-beasts.

And, if all that wasn’t enough, they must also cross swords with, and outwit, the most celebrated private consulting detective of them all!
