Synopsis of the book
This novel set in and around London in the late 1800's features some very unusual literary figures including the mysterious doctor whose house is always surrounded by thunderstorms, crazy Jill the witch, the count who lives in the graveyard, a mad monk named Rastov, the great detective and his faithful friend, and a man named Jack who carries an extremely large knife. These prominent people are playing a dangerous game which will either loose the elder gods upon the world again, or keep them pent-up for a few more years. And if that doesn't sound strange enough, the story is a daily journal written by Jack's watchdog Snuff.
