Spooks meets The X-Files with a generous helping of Le Carré, and a dash of Stephen King.
A number of influential South Korean nationals are committing suicide on UK soil. In all cases they seem to simply drop whatever they're doing and swiftly -- almost vacantly -- end their own lives. An electronics importer falls from the top floor of his high-rise office, the ambassador to the UK shoots his chauffeur and drives his own car off London Bridge, an actor sets fire to himself during a movie premiere...
August and Toby investigate and slowly uncover the ancient force of The Rain-Soaked Bride, a ghostly spirit of vengeance that drags her enemies to their deaths.
Once summoned the spirit cannot be dismissed until it takes the life it is charged with, it will be unstoppable in its pursuit of the mortal it has in its sights. Unfortunately, after getting too close to the source of the spirit, that mortal is now Toby Greene.
About the Author
Guy Adams lives in Spain surrounded by rescue animals. Some of them are his family. He isn't a spy - but he is a boy, so naturally he's always dreamed of being one. Having spent over ten years working as a professional actor and comedian, eventually he decided he'd quite like to eat regularly, so switched careers and became a full-time writer. Nobody said he was clever. Against all odds he managed to stay busy and since then he has written over twenty books.
"there is much in this novel to entice us to take our sleeping bag to the nearest bookshop doorstep and queue early for Book 3" The Bookbag "The Rain-Soaked Bride is a thoroughly entertaining sequel, and well worth adding to any urban fantasy collection." -- Nathan Brazil SFsite.com "In a way, we wish Adams had started writing these thirty years ago so there would be a rich vein of stories for the new fan to discover. As it is, we must be content with two very well written and funny books. At least there's a third on the way, though it's a shame we have to wait for it." Starburst Magazine
