Live and Let Drood

Once again, I'd left the Phantom V parked so illegally it was practically committing treason just sitting there. I'd told Catherine Latimer I'd be parking the Rolls right next to the Houses of Parliament, so she could warn off the security people in the full knowledge that the boss might or might not apss the information along. Depending on whether she thought it might be funnier not to. Like most people in positions of power, Latimer was famous for her perverse, not to say downright peculiar, sense of humour.


This is a book in a series, and reading further on this page without having read the previous books might spoil some of your fun.

The story:

When Molly and Eddie return after three months of vacation, they come back to find the Hall in ruins. The gryphons and unicorns are missing. The Droods are dead or gone. And the protections that have hidden the Hall for so long are no longer there.

Eddie and Molly sets out to find out what happened to the Droods, and to get back at whoever was behind it. But to do that, they will need the help of some very powerful people. And so they go looking for the Regent of Shadows.

About the book:

Several secrets are being revealed here; some of them seem to have been planned quite a while in advance. The Regent of Shadows is quite an interesting character, as are some of his agents.

Seeing Catherine Latimer from the Ghostfinder series is also entertaining; I like the way Simon Green brings in characters from his other series, something he does far more in the Secret History series than in the Nightside series.
