From publicity material: The Somnambulist is weird and wonderful; an extraordinary tale of secret societies, traveling circuses, and the walking dead. The debut author tells the extraordinary tale of Edward Moon, stage magician and detective, and his silent sidekick the Somnambulist. A bizarre series of murders unsettles turn-of-the-century London, but as Moon begins to investigate, he realizes that these killings are only the surface aspects of what is actually occurring -- nourished by blood and poetry, an eerie uprising has been growing among the very roots of the city itself.
