Book 8: Gaslamp Gothic
Hunting monsters requires three things.
Decent shoes for running away when the first fails.
And a willingness to spend one’s honeymoon in the wilds of Scotland.
Harry isn’t entirely convinced about the last one. But her beloved has his heart set on visiting the sleepy village of Drumnadrochit, which just happens to sit on the shore of Loch Ness.
Rumors swirl around the loch—whispered tales of a huge hump-backed creature seen swimming through the murk.
John can’t resist the lure of a yet-undiscovered species. Harry agrees to investigate…if he promises to do the rowing.
When they arrive, they discover that they’re not the only ones chasing Nessie. A local newspaper is offering a reward for the first photograph and droves of amateur monster hunters descend on the village, including Harry’s godfather, Arthur Conan Doyle.
If that isn’t enough to dash her hopes for a romantic interlude, a series of brutal murders points to yet another legendary beast—one which, as Uncle Arthur puts it, “has the footprints of a gigantic hound!”
It will take all of Harry’s cunning to uncover the truth behind the deaths—and what lurks beneath the dark, chill waters of the loch.
You’ll love The Beast of Loch Ness for its witty banter, spine-chilling monster mash-up, and diabolically clever mystery.
