A short novel of terror, turmoil, torment and romance with a festive Victorian flavour, from the award winning writer, Paul Finch.

In the year 1843, embittered Afghan war veteran John Sparrowhawk is released from the debtor's prison by the beautiful and enigmatic Miss Evangeline.

Penniless and alone in the world, he takes employment with his mysterious benefactor, agreeing to stand guard over a house in Bloomsbury for the duration of the Christmas period.

But while London is gripped in the coldest winter in living memory, Sparrowhawk soon comes to realise that he is being stalked by a supernatural entity, whose terrifying presence is only partially cloaked by the mist and the snow and the gnawing winter darkness.

'Sparrowhawk' was a finalist in the British Fantasy Awards 2011 in the capacity of Best Novella. If nothing else, it should certainly remind you what really matters at Christmas.
