Dr Marvello's Travelling Circus brings a touch of magic and wonder each tine it comes to town. But when master conjuror Cornelius Quaint and his troupe take to the streets of Victorian London, little do they know of the danger that lies ahead.

The arrival of Marvello's Travelling Circus to the streets of Victorian London was supposed to herald a carnival of entertainment and wonder but when a series of brutal and savage murders take place the number one suspect is the circus strongman, Prometheus.

Enter Cornelius Quaint, circus owner and master conjuror, to clear the name of his gargantuan employee. But what he sees as a simple case of wrongful arrest proves to be more complex when ghosts from his own past start to appear on the scene and events take an unexpected turn. A book of great wit and bravado, a circus of a novel with a central character who will sweep you off your feet and into this dark historical adventure.?

Darren Craske hails from the south of England and has been telling stories in one form or another all his life. He began his craft writing and illustrating comic books before moving onto writing novels in 2003. His approach is unashamedly a simple one; to carve darn good adventure stories with pits, traps, perils and troubles with a colourful palette of characters and keep readers on the edge of their seats whilst doing it. The Equivoque Principle saw the debut of the enigmatic conjuror and circus owner, Cornelius Quaint, and Craske is all about setting down a new mythology that he hopes will entertain readers for the long term. The eagerly awaited second book in the Cornelius Quaint Chronicles, The Eleventh Plague, continues Quaint's quest to stop the machinations of the villainous Hades Consortium and the tale forges the blade anew for what promises to be one of the wildest literary rides in ages. From Victorian London to Egypt, China, Rome and beyond, it's a safe bet that Cornelius Quaint's adventures are going to be thrilling readers for a long time yet and he is in good hands. Adventure, danger, murder,'s all very Quaint.
