“I understand that you were intending on visiting another address, but please let me assure you that you’ve come to the right place. The gentleman you were looking for is out of town, and I am certain that I will be able to help you. I’m Hemlock Jones, Demystifier.”
Ten doors down from the home of a world-famous ‘consulting detective’ lives twelve-year-old Hemlock Jones, and her recently arrived housemate and unwitting companion, Edward Whitlow.
Hired to ‘demystify’ the mystery of a man’s murder by a terrifying angelic spectre, Hemlock and Edward’s investigations will lead them all over Victorian London, uncovering bizarre and deadly foes, figures from Hemlock’s hidden past, and a plot to take over the city…
Hemlock Jones & The Angel of Death is the first of the Hemlock Jones Chronicles, a series of detective adventures for children and adults, set in Victorian London.
