Collected here for the first time in one volume, (a cheaper option than purchasing them individually).Rufus Cobb, Adele Curran and Jim Darby are the lead characters in a series of books - The Londum Series.

Set in an alternate Victorian Era, in a country called Albion, they recount the adventures of Rufus Cobb, a private detective, his lady friend, Adele Curran (who just happens to be a witch) and Jim Darby, who is a jewel-thief and conman ... but whose crimes strangely only seem to benefit the poor. Cobb and his friends live in the city of Londum, in the country of Albion, the centre of the British Empire.This book contains the novels:Split Infinity: In an alternate Victorian England, Rufus Cobb, part time private detective, full time drunk, is having a rough time.

Once a respected police officer at Caledonia Yard, he is now reduced to tracking lost dogs and unfaithful spouses to make ends meet.And just when he thought things couldnt get any worse, they did. Hired by his old enemy, Marcus Quist, to find his missing daughter, before the case is through Cobb will have to face witches, immortals, oriental bodyguards, dangerous foreign monks and mythical monsters. Oh yes, and his cat hates him, as well.Destiny conspires to saddle Cobb with the most important case of his life, well anybodys life, come to that. The fate of the Universe may depend on Cobb.

Good job the pubs stay open late.And who is killing all the clowns?Hair of the Dog: During a state visit to Albion, the Great Seal of Pils-Holstein is stolen. Private detective Rufus Cobb is called in by Caledonia Yard to recover the Seal and avoid an international incident.Meanwhile, a werewolf is stalking the East End of Londum, cold bloodedly killing its innocent victims, (and some not so innocent ones).

Are the two things connected?Cobb and Jim Darby are sent to Pils-Holstein by the British Government to put an end to the werewolf menace once and for all but does Darby have his own agenda?Stuck between the werewolves on one side and Jim Darby on the other, with no one to watch his back, Cobb finds that things can get decidedly ... hairy!The Speed of Dark: Its a pretty risky thing to travel to another Universe and rescue someone that you dont even like and generally isnt a recommended course of action.However, against his better judgement, Rufus Cobb is persuaded to do so by a beautiful woman.

(Women eh?) Little does he know what hes letting himself in for. Before hes finished, he will find himself fulfilling someones centuries old prophecy in an oppressed country, which may seem somewhat familiar.Captured by the Black Guard and subjected to the Castilian Questioning by the Grand Questioner himself, Torquelauda, Cobb is responsible for igniting a revolution that will lead to the freedom of all Angleland.

(Where? I hear you ask. Well, read the bookand find out.)And as if that wasnt enough, having a showdown with the Gods themselves is enough to keep anyone on their toes. And talking of toes ... did I mention the one-legged man?Its all in here ... Love, Death, Sex, Violence, Destiny ...

and many other words!Length approx 218,000 words.
