George Mann has posted the UK cover art and synopsis of his upcoming Newbury & Hobbes novel The Executioners Heart. I’m excited about this one, as I’ve read the other stories and enjoyed them very much.
Here’s the synopsis:
A serial killer is loose on the streets of London, murdering apparently random members of the gentry with violent abandon. The corpses are each found with their chest cavities cracked open and their hearts removed. Charles Bainbridge, Chief Inspector of Scotland Yard, suspects an occult significance to the crimes and brings Newbury and Veronica in to investigate.
