A pearl with a long and bloody history. Author Tim Holter Bruckner offers up a noir-inspired story of intrigue, action, and adventure in the tradition of Dashiell Hammett. For centuries, the Pearl Le Fong’s perfection inspired covetousness and brutality. Cold blooded murder brought it into the possession of England’s most notorious criminal mastermind and only one man can put an end to Syng’s reign of terror, consulting detective Desmond Owle. Owle’s critical sensitivity to light plunges the investigation into the darkest corners of London society at the peril of his and Mrs. Rothman’s life.
