Mask of the Verdoy
Phil Lecomber

London, 1932. A city held tight in the grip of the Great Depression. George Harley’s London. The West End rotten with petty crime and prostitution; anarchists blowing up trams; fascists marching on the East End. And then, one smoggy night, the cruel stripe of a cutthroat razor, three boys dead in their beds, and a masked killer mysteriously vanishing across the smoky rooftops of Fitzrovia. Before long the cockney detective is drawn into a dark world of murder and intrigue, as he uncovers a conspiracy that threatens the very security of the British nation.

Phil Lecomber: "I found the whole process of working with Bryony Sutherland a delight. Not only did she bring along a high level of professionalism and technical ability, but she engaged with the project wholeheartedly, and seemed to understand the concept, characters and atmosphere of the book from day one. I’ve adopted all of her constructive suggestions and corrections, and consequently I now have a tighter and sleeker novel. I’d highly recommend you work with this extremely talented and enthusiastic editor."
