We are reprising Jim’s recent talk, which fell victim to the snowy weather – those hardy souls who made it first time round will know just what a fascinating evening this will be.
D.I. Eden Brooke, a wounded hero of the Great War, takes his nightly dip in the cool waters of the Cam. Daylight reveals a corpse on the riverside, the body torn apart by some unspeakable force. Brooke investigates, calling on the expertise and inspiration of a faithful group of fellow ‘nighthawks’ across the city, all condemned, like the detective, to a life lived away from the light. Infused with his customary sense of place and tightly plotted as ever, The Great Darkness is the first of an exciting new series from Jim.
