#OctoberFrights Day Six: The Assassin's Coin



For this the last day of October Frights, I bring you another book, this one by fellow hopper John Linwood Grant, about the his most terrifying assassin, Mr. Dry, and the days when Jack the Ripper stalked the streets of London...


Are You Afraid of the Dark (And October Frights) Presents



The Assassin's Coin: The True History of the Deptford Assassin

by John Linwood Grant




She is Catherine Weatherhead, and she is Madame Rostov. She will lie, though not with malice. She will deceive, though often with good cause. And she will change the course of history, for murder speaks to her. In Whitechapel, all talk is of Jack the Ripper, but there is another killer in play, and he most definitely has a name. Mr Edwin Dry, the Deptford Assassin. The truth is not what you believe. It is what he makes it.

Although THE ASSASSIN'S COIN is a standalone story, it is also a companion novel to the Jack the Ripper Victims Series novel, THE PROSTITUTE'S PRICE, by Alan M. Clark. To gain a broader experience of each novel, read both.


The Assassin's Coin is available on Amazon







For more stories with Mr. Dry (and other tales) also check out the author's other most most excellent book:  A Persistence of Geraniums and Other Worrying Tales



John Linwood Grant is an author and editor whose stories have appeared in various anthologies and is part of the team for Occult Detective Quarterly. He also runs the strange but delightful blog, greydogtales.
