Publisher's Summary

Weird things lurk in the dark streets of London in 1925.

After a bizarre shooting incident, Harry Stubbs, former heavyweight boxer and sometime debt collector, is coerced into helping a visitor from Shanghai. Mr Yang, an agent of the feared Si Fan Society with unusual powers, is seeking information about a dead man.

Roslyn D'Onston was a journalist and black magician - and a leading suspect in the Jack the Ripper killings. D'Onston has been dead for 13 years. But exactly how dead is he now?

When Yang joins a cell of renegade Theosophists for a seance, things start to go terribly wrong and Harry finds himself caught in a battle between occult powers, with strange enemies and stranger friends. It will take all his deductive skills - and skill at throwing a killer punch - to survive against the all-too-real arts of necromancy....

Broken Meats is the sequel to The Elder Ice, described by critic ST Joshi as having "smooth-flowing prose, crisply delineated characters, effective portrayal of the historical period, and a powerful horrific climax".

    "Terrific adaptation of a cracking story"
    Would you listen to Broken Meats again? Why?

    I expect I will. It's great to hear Harry Stubbs brought to life so vividly.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Well, it has to be Stubbsy, really. I like his slightly self-deprecating, understated way of going about things, and his fundamental decency.


    What about Gethyn Edwards’s performance did you like?

    I like how well he captured Stubbs, and also thought his portrayal of Yang was pitched very well, and really brought across the subtleties of the character.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I spent a lot of time nodding in appreciation, if that counts?


    Any additional comments?

    A smart and understanding adaptation of a well-written and entertaining tale. Can only recommend.

    Story
    "David Hambling breaths life into Mythos Adventure!"
    If you could sum up Broken Meats in three words, what would they be?

    Can't be done. The story has too many facets to chop down into three words. that is a completely preposterous question.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    As always, Harry's tale keep you completely enthralled. i cannot wait for Alien Stars: A Harry Stubbs Adventure to come out.


    What about Gethyn Edwards’s performance did you like?

    Normally i have an issue with an audiobook switching narration; but this guy is pretty close to the original narrator. HOWEVER, i do not like that they changed Arthur's voice, by changing the voice you changed his whole persona!!! with that said, the voice did for Mr. Yang was fantastic.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    it kept me very entertained.


    Any additional comments?

    If you love Mythos adventure stories, this book is for you. LOVE this series.

    Harry Stubbs


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I liked the seance scene. It was very evocative.

    I hope that Harry will have many more adventures.
