Newbury & Hobbes

The Affinity Bridge

Ghostly policemen haunt the alleyways of Whitechapel, cadavers rise from the dead, and now an airship has crashed under strange circumstances. Mystified by a series of grisly murders, Scotland Yard call upon the brilliant Sir Maurice Newbury, Gentlemen Investigator for the Crown, and his recently appointed and unflappable assistant, Miss Veronica Hobbes.

The Executioner’s Heart

A serial killer is loose on the streets of London. The corpses are each found with their chest cavities cracked open and their hearts removed. It is clear some new and strange contraption is being used to affect this procedure. Bainbridge suspects an occult significance to the crimes and brings Newbury and Veronica in to investigate.

The Immorality Engine

How can a dead man commit a crime? When the body of a well-known criminal is found, Bainbridge and Veronica track Newbury down to help with the case. The body clearly, irrefutably, belongs to the man in question, but shortly after his body is brought to the morgue, a crime is discovered that bears all the dead man’s hallmarks. Is it a copycat, or some far more sinister?

The Osiris Ritual

Death stalks London and the newspapers proclaim that a mummy’s curse has been unleashed. Newbury and Veronica are soon drawn into a web of occult intrigue as they attempt to solve the murders. And they soon find themselves on the trail of a rogue agent – a man who died to be reborn as a living weapon.
