Book Description

London 1855, the Egyptian mummies of the British Museum have awoken, stalking the fog bound streets. Freekly Oldacre, an eight-foot tall, congenitally deformed hunchback, albino, but still the British Empire’s Premier Private Consulting Detective, sets out to investigate. He’s aided in the investigation by his friend Professor Enoch Beard, a nervous three foot midget, and Tsai Sparrow, an Egyptologist crippled by Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. The case leads the peculiar trio to follow a bloody trail of murder, as they desperately try to recover a cursed toenail-clipping; taken from the long dead Egyptian High Priestess Amunet.

Freekly is not alone is his search for the toenail. Close on his tail are an Egyptian Death Cult, and the Prussian Empire’s most dangerous and deadly spy. As Freekly is embroiled in a heart-stopping chase from London to Cornwall, and across the moors to Dartmoor gaol; he must discover why such disparate groups are so desperate to recover the ancient curiosity, uncovering an ancient secret that could change the world.

By turns nail bitingly tense and uproariously hilarious, this fast paced, gripping, and twisting tale of suspense, murder deceit and intrigue will have you breathlessly waiting for the next time they ‘leave it to Freekly’.

More About the Author

What is there to say about H. N. Lloyd, well, among other things I somehow became an ordained minister, so you can call me Rev and I can do weddings, funerals, christenings and exorcisms at a reasonably knocked down price. My interest in crime and all things macabre led me to train under some of the countries leading criminologists, an experience which was both an honour and one of the best times of my life.

I've gone ghost hunting across the globe, debunked psychics, hunted the beasts of Bodmin Moor and interviewed a man who believed he'd once seen an alien being beaten to death round the back of his local Chemists.

Whilst travelling the world I've been caught up in a revolution, been shot at by aggrieved soldiers and had to take flight from an enraged Gypsy encampment. I've fell from grace and been called a four letter word by my childhood hero, and stood on stage with master illusionist David Copperfield.

I spend my days watching repeats of Quincy and Heir Hunters and telling myself its research, before eating a bacon sandwich and watching the Daily Politics. I've been a gag writer and once did some stand up comedy where I bore my soul for everyone to laugh at, I've also had a script for a comedy series taken to Hollywood, where it promptly disappeared.
