A night at the circus spirals into terror...
A traitorous fiance and a murderous stranger send straight-laced bookish Emmie Kirkwood fleeing into the night fog.
But, the foggy night of 1870's London holds more than mysterious murderers, traitors, and other dark dangers. When a strange gas lamp appears at the side of the road, will it lead her to a place of refuge or a doom worse than what awaits her outside?
Meanwhile, her would-be killer is still hot on her trail.
A 11200 word steampunk suspense novelette in the Gateway Roadhouse Chronicles.
