Oxford Street, London. The body of a woman is found dead on the sidewalk, shot through the heart. Neither local police nor the National Crime Agency could find a witness or any physical evidence except the bullets, which promptly vanished in a puff of black smoke when extracted. What’s more, the woman’s identity could not be found in any database.

Set against the backdrop of a social revolution where protestors demand the breakdown of the International Statute of Secrecy, Auror Liam Sinclair and his team must decipher the mystery of Mafalda Hopkirk’s death, and the Dark machinations that surround it.

Chapter One, “A Feather Falls on Oxford Street”, is now available here.
