Bookburners continues with a murder that brings Sal back to New York. And in A Most Dangerous Woman, a friendly visit leads to a deadly confrontation—and a break in the case. Plus, a new micro story is published on our second Microfiction Monday!
Everything in the Bookburners’ lives falls into two categories: Before London and After London. Before London, things were strange, sure, but After London . . . “strange” doesn’t even begin to describe it. Magic is everywhere—and the Bookburners can only be in one place at a time.

When a murder that’s clearly magical in nature calls Sal and Father Menchú to New York, Sal is grateful to be back on her home turf. The NYPD feels comfortingly familiar. But it soon becomes clear that this death has implications far beyond New York City, and it’s urgent that the Bookburners figure out who’s pulling the strings—before it’s too late.

In Brenda Clough’s deliciously authentic sequel to Wilkie Collins’ The Woman in White, Marian Halcolmbe finds and marries her true love, Theo Camlet. But when Theo’s first wife, who everyone believed to be dead, reappears, Marian and her brother in law Walter must delve into the darkest and most dangerous corners of London to save Theo from accusations of bigamy and murder, as well as the hangman’s noose.
When Marian and Laura run into an acquaintance outside the prison, Laura is moved to visit the woman’s ill child. Despite the shocking squalor in the East End, Laura remains determined to help the family. But while her sister kneels by the sickbed, Marian catches sight of a familiar face—and realizes that they’ve stumbled right into the heart of the anarchists’ den.
Though you don’t need to read The Woman in White in order to enjoy A Most Dangerous Woman, you can also now read all of Wilkie Collin’s classic novel for free.
