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.

Lovecraftian Noir Thriller

The second of the Harry Stubbs audiobooks, and what an improvement in narration! Gethyn Edwards really brings Stubbs to life in this thrilling homage to The Case Of Charles Dexter Ward.

The story is tautly written and rich in suspense, action and atmosphere. Harry Stubbs is a brilliant addition to the world of pulp horror, and I can’t wait to start his next adventure.

Very highly recommended for fans of Lovecraft and noir detective fiction.
