The Domino MenBook - 2009
Just as grandfather lies dying, just as he finally finds love with the girl next dor, Henry Lamb is propelled from the boredom of being a civil service filling clerk into an altogether more startling existence. Into a world where the House of Windsor is in league with a very ancient friend, where grown men dressed as schoolboys are the most terrifying thing you could imagine, where his grandfather was a spy, where Henry is the key to stopping horror overwhelming us all. Or so he says. Because...Heny Lamb is a liar. Take nothing he says on trust. He is spinning you lines, sugaring the truth, telling you what he thinks you want to hear. Henry is no innocent. The lillywhite Lamb has blood on his hands. Join Jonathan Barnes on an eye-popping literary odyssey around London as you have never seen it before, through a history you would never believe. You will meed a royal family who are a more than usually convincing argument for Repulicanism. And you may even meet a couple of old school friends again.
