From multi-award-winning fantasy writer Tim Powers: a secret history of 19th-century London. 'Tim Powers is a brilliant writer... Wonderfully original' William GibsonLondon, 1862: a city of stinking fog and dark, winding streets. Adelaide McKee, a former prostitute, arrives on the doorstep of veterinary doctor John Crawford, a man she met once seven years earlier and the father of her only child, long presumed dead.
She has recently learned that the girl lives - but her life and soul are sought by a ghostly vampire. And this is no ordinary spirit; the bloodthirsty wraith is that of John Polidori, Lord Byron's doctor... Sweeping from high society to grimy slums, from elegant West End salons to the pre-Roman catacombs beneath St.
Paul's, Hide Me Among the Graves blends the historical and the supernatural in a unique and dazzling novel.
