It's 1921, and the Jazz Age is in full swing. But behind the boisterous veneer, malevolence lurks: An airship overrun by seductive killers. An asylum filled with living dead. A mysterious doctor with a secret language. Only one hero has the guts and gusto to face these horrors-Elizabeth Crowne, Uncannologist. Witty and suspenseful, The Mysterious Tongue of Dr. Vermilion collects five Elizabeth Crowne stories, plunging the reader into kaleidoscopic mystery and Radium Age adventure. From the sultry nightclubs of Cuba to the cobblestone streets of Pittsburgh, Elizabeth probes the paranormal-and gives death a run for its money.
