BTCG: CHUNG LING SOO -Man Of Mystery

 

Two other BTCG books worth pimping are drawn by Gavin Ross -as with Ross’s other BTCG book, Dene Vernon: The Thing From Below, these are written by Terry Hooper-Scharf.

Good Victorian era mystery, suspense and -perhaps?- paranormal strangeness.

Oddly, re-reading them yesterday there were certain pages that gave me goose-bumps!

You buy these you get your hands on books that twist and turn and are well worthy of the banner:”Let The Deception Begin”!

 

A European fan favourite but not yet receiving much attention in the UK, Terry Hooper-Scarf and Gavin Stuart Ross’ Victorian Chinese man of mystery is available in English at Black Tower’s online store.

 

The phrase “Let the Deception Begin” from the book has now started appearing in street graffiti.

This is where it all started. Chung Ling Soo: the World’s greatest conjurer and, unknown to the world at large, a consultant to Scotland Yard in some of its strangest cases.

 

In this story, Chung Ling Soo is called in by Scotland Yard to investigate a gruesome series of deaths -all amongst a party of English businessmen who, many years before, discovered a Jade Dragon statuette in China.

 

Is the statuette cursed? How can a man be killed in a locked room? And can only a supernatural explanation account for how two policemen and the man they were guarding were hacked-up?  Can Chung stop any other deaths?

 

This book includes the original Chung Ling Soo 3 pager: “The Theatre”

Victorian conjurer and man of mystery and deception as well as someone Scotland Yard consults in its most “unusual” cases.  The mysterious Q Bureaux consults  Chung Ling Soo over a series of bizarre murders in London’s dockland and sightings of a sea serpent in the Thames.

 

However, Soo reveals that he has been marked for death by a Chinese Tong that has never failed to get its man.  Will Chung be able to escape death long enough to solve the mystery?

 

Scotland Yard hope so yet, in the presence of the head of Q Bureaux and Scotland Yard’s best detective Soo is murdered.

 

Who is the Dragon Lord and how do his murderous plans fit into things?

 

And just WHO will now solve the mysteries?

 

Mystery, action and twisted plots abound –plus a head-to-head battle between the Tong and British Army in dockland!
