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".
