Sherlock Holmes faces H.G. Wells’ Doctor Moreau in this thrilling fast paced romp, perfect for readers of both classic Victorian detective mysteries and science fiction alike

Following the trail of several corpses seemingly killed by wild animals, Holmes and Watson stumble upon the experiments of Doctor Moreau. 

Moreau, through vivisection and crude genetic engineering is creating animal hybrids, determined to prove the evolutionary theories of Charles Darwin. In his laboratory, hidden among the opium dens of Rotherhithe, Moreau is building an army of 'beast men'. Tired of having his work ignored—or reviled—by the British scientific community, Moreau is willing to make the world pay attention using his creatures as a force to gain control of the government.

A brand-new adventure for Conan Doyle's intrepid sleuth!
Guy Adams trained and worked as an actor for twelve years before becoming a full-time writer. He is the co-author of The Case Notes of Sherlock Holmes and has written several tie-ins to the TV series Life on Mars. Restoration, the follow-up to the much-praised horror novel, The World House was published in 2011, as well as his first Sherlock Holmes novel - The Breath of God.
