The Goldemar Affair
From The Casebook of Lyons & Hound
Inspired by the classic swashbuckler films,
THE GOLDEMAR AFFAIR,
the latest adventure from the Casebook of Lyons & Hound.
"‘If I’d had an extra spoonful of jam roly-poly pudding for every vile villain that has promised to take my head as a trophy, Baron, I’d be as fat as you are deluded, you despicable bounder!’ snorted the were-wolfhound derisively ..."
In a picture-postcard English castle, set upon the sleepy Sussex/Kent border, a sinister occult society hosts a clandestine meeting. Their objective - to forge an
alliance with the United Kingdoms most ancient and implacable enemy and, in so doing, fan the flames for a second world war.
It falls to the internationally esteemed paranormal investigation agency of Lyons & Hound (est. 1895) to infiltrate this diabolical diorama and unmask the vile villains who lie at the heart of this abominable plot.
Along the way they encounter: a mysterious and magical messenger; a deranged, discredited and debarred scientist; a monstrous man-servant (of literary fame); a band of mechanically-enhanced zombie henchmen; and a war party of wild and ferocious Fae.
And if all that wasn't enough, Mr Hound must settle a debt of honour with an ancient and implacable enemy of his own!
Caractaus Plume has unleashed another wondrous adventure. We once again see our favourite duo ‘aitch and Dandy taking on another challenge. This time in the shape of investigating the mysterious Thule society, a group of dastardly bounders hell bent on aiding the notorious Clockwork Baron, overthrow dear old blighty.
