Description

"First in a brand-new historical mystery series featuring decidedly unconventional turn of the century sleuth, Detective Inspector Silas Quinn. ""London, 1914." A killer is at liberty in the dark alleys of the city. The cadavers of his victims all have one thing in common: there is no blood in their bodies. As the killer's reign of terror continues, Scotland Yard's Detective Inspector Silas Quinn finds his suspicions focusing on the members of an exclusive gentleman's club . . . Atmospheric and macabre, Summon Up the Blood takes the reader on a disturbing yet fascinating journey through London's aristocratic watering holes, seedy brothels and shadowy underworld in the turbulent months leading up to World War I.
