The Invisible Code Is Nearly Cracked
I’m just putting the finishing touches to ‘Bryant & May and the Invisible Code’, the tenth volume in the series. It’ll be bigger than recent volumes, because there’s a lot to get through, and will be published by Transworld on August 1st 2012.
Here’s a jacket synopsis;
Two children play a game called ‘Witch-Hunter’, and place a curse on a girl taking lunch in a London park. An hour later the girl is found dead, inside a church no-one else has entered. So who put the red cord around her left wrist?
Bryant & May are ready to solve the case, but aren’t given it. Instead, they are hired by their greatest enemy to find out why his wife is behaving strangely. She’s convinced someone is trying to drive her insane.
So begins the investigation that will test the members of the Peculiar Crimes Unit to their limits, setting Bryant and May off on a trail that leads to witchcraft, madness, Hellfire clubs, class, secret codes and London’s greatest and most terrible secret…
This one’s a biggie, and seems to have turned out nicely. After delivery I’ll be writing several more stand-alone thrillers like ‘Hell Train’, but I hope to return to Bryant & May if the demand continues. And thanks to everyone’s help, I’m checking out those possible homes for the Bryant & May graphic novel.
