The Rain-Soaked Bride

Guy Adams

A number of influential South Korean nationals are committing suicide on UK soil. In all cases they seem to simply drop whatever they're doing and swiftly -- almost vacantly -- end their own lives. An electronics importer falls from the top floor of his high-rise office, the ambassador to the UK shoots his chauffeur and drives his own car off London Bridge, an actor sets fire to himself during a movie premiere... August and Toby investigate and slowly uncover the ancient force of the Rain-Soaked Bride, a ghostly spirit of vengeance that drags her enemies to their deaths. Once summoned the spirit cannot be dismissed until it takes the life it is charged with, it will be unstoppable in its pursuit of the mortal it has in its sights. Unfortunately, after getting too close to the source of the spirit, that mortal is now Toby Greene.

The Good the Bad and the Infernal

The Good the Bad and the Infernal

Guy Adams

Nonfiction / Mystery

A weird western, a gun-toting, cigarrillo-chewing fantasy built from hangman’s rope and spent bullets. The west has never been wilder. A Steampunk-Western-Fantasy from Guy Adams.“You wish to meet your God?” the gunslinger asked, cocking his revolver, “well now... that’s easy to arrange.” Every one hundred years a town appears. From a small village in the peaks of Tibet to a gathering of mud huts in the jungles of South American, it can take many forms. It exists for twenty-four hours then vanishes once more, but for that single day it contains the greatest miracle a man could imagine: a doorway to Heaven. It is due to appear on the 21st September 1889 as a ghost town in the American Midwest. When it does there are many who hope to be there: traveling preacher Obeisance Hicks and his simple messiah, a brain-damaged Civil War veteran; Henry and Harmonium Jones and their freak show pack of outlaws; the Brothers of Ruth and their sponsor Lord Forset (inventor of the Forset Thunderpack and other incendiary modes of personal transport); finally, an aging gunslinger who lost his wings at the very beginning of creation and wants nothing more than to settle old scores. A weird western, a gun-toting, cigarrillo-chewing fantasy built from hangman’s rope and spent bullets. The West has never been wilder.About the AuthorGuy Adams is the author of the fantasy novels The World House and its sequel Restoration, as well as the Deadbeat * series coming soon from Titan Books. He has also written two Torchwood novels, The House That Jack Built and The Men Who Sold the World for BBC Books; and The Case Notes of Sherlock Holmes, a fictional facsimile of a scrapbook kept by Doctor John Watson. This was published in 2009 by Carlton Books in association with the Estate of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the writer’s birth. The first of two brand new Sherlock Holmes novels, The Breath of God, was published by Titan Books late in 2011 with The Army of Doctor Moreau to follow. Guy has written three novelisations for Hammer Books: Captain Kronos: Vampire Hunter, Hands of the Ripper and Countess Dracula, the latter of which sees the story updated to thirties Hollywood and is just like Singing in the Rain* but with a few more dead virgins.
