n this Victorian historical fantasy novel, a member of the
famed Bloomsbury writers’ group attempts to conjure a
doppelganger—an Earth Elemental Golem—to do his writing
for him while he enjoys the London social scene. When a
shadow image of himself knocks on his door some nights
after his invocation, he lets it into the house thinking
that his ritual has been a success, not realizing that the
Golem is actually inhabited by the ghost of a murderous
fiend—part Jack the Ripper and part Mr. Hyde.
Mary and Dr. Watson are called in to investigate a serial
killer in Battersea, a rough neighborhood in London. They
discover that many more women are missing than have turned
up actually dead. Meanwhile, their colleagues Nan and
Sarah, a Psychic and a Medium, are tracking down a villain
who is causing scandal by seducing young ladies of quality
and then vanishing. The girls all report gaps in their
memories, but the common thread is that they all met this
rake at public lectures, and the next thing they knew,
they were waking up in seedy Battersea hotel rooms, alone
and naked. Most suspiciously of all, none of them can
remember just what their seducer looks like.
Nan, Sarah, and the Watsons discover that they are hunting
the same man—who isn’t a man at all. It will require
Elemental Magic, Sarah’s mediumistic powers, and all of
their combined wit and cunning to destroy the Golem…before
all of London succumbs to its powers.
