Publisher's Summary

In the year 1843, embittered Afghan War veteran John Sparrowhawk is released from the debtors’ prison by the beautiful and enigmatic Miss Evangeline.

Penniless and alone in the world, he takes employment with his mysterious benefactor, agreeing to stand guard over a house in Bloomsbury for the duration of that December.

The task sounds simple, but in fact is anything but.

While London is gripped by the coldest winter in living memory, a supernatural entity emerges from the frozen shadows, challenging Sparrowhawk at every turn, cloaked by the mist and snow, yet tormenting him relentlessly, not just with his own demons, but by drawing on the darkest, most sinister myths of the Yuletide season....

A Victorian ghost story from the pen of best-selling thriller and horror writer and multiple British Fantasy Award winner, Paul Finch.

Sparrowhawk was a finalist in the British Fantasy Awards 2011 in the capacity of Best Novella.
