The 4th ‘Secret Histories’ novel sees Eddie Drood leap into the fray yet again. The Matriarch has been murdered, a wannabe super villain is suddenly a major threat and the Droods discover their clan has a dark counterpart.
This is an action packed tale that is far bet than the disappointing ‘The Spy Who Haunted Me’. It has murder, treachery, pop culture homages, action and Eddie Drood once against standing between humanity and the forces of darkness. This was good with a cliffhanger ending.
