Publisher's Summary

When Cyrus Barker and Thomas Llewelyn are hired to find a girl from the upper classes who has gone missing in the East End, they assume her kidnapping is the work of white slavers. But when they discover five girls have been murdered in Bethnal Green, taunting letters begin to arrive in Craig's Court from a killer calling himself Mr. Miacca.
Barker fears that Miacca might be part of the Hellfire Club, a group of powerful, hedonistic aristocrats performing satanic rituals. He must track the fiend to his hideout, while Llewelyn confronts the man who put him in prison.
Dodging muckrakers, navigating the murky Thames under cover of darkness, and infiltrating London's most powerful secret society, The Hellfire Conspiracy is another wild ride that "brings to life a London roiling with secret leagues, deadly organizations, and hidden clubs" (Ron Bernas, Detroit Free Press).

This series is addictive

I have enjoyed the first 4 audio books in the series, and am impatient for the rest to be released. The narration is superb. The historical settings vivid. All with a sprinkle of dry humor

His best yet! Well done!

I have listened to all of the books thus far in the series. I believe this is the best one yet! Although they are all excellent books, this one seems to have moved to a different level. If you want to listen to a story with mystery, intrigue and no foul language, this is for you! The narrator does an excellent job as well, as usual. Being a Christian myself, I enjoy the references to Christianity and how it applies to us today as well as it did in the 19th century.
