The Terrible Business of Salmon & Dusk
Theo Braithwaite, failed actress and worse waitress, is a stranger to London. In a single day, she loses her job, her boyfriend and quite possibly her mind. When she meets part-time thief Kilbey Salmon, Theo finds herself drawn into an unseen world populated by history’s rejects and runaways. Kilbey, alongside the rockabilly-obsessed Nero Dusk, is attempting to eke out a living stealing things that have already been stolen and finding people who don't want to be found.
Kilbey and Nero's capers will drag Theo through the forgotten parts and people of London. She will be hunted by ancient sects, carnivorous shadows, cannibalistic butchers and off-duty policemen. Along the way she'll meet the Eternal Footmen, blow up Hammersmith Bridge, reach the end of history and quite possibly disappear completely.
If Theo is to survive, she'll need to get her life sorted before all of our futures catch up with her.
Part film noir detective story, part fantasy adventure, part East End gangster tale, The Terrible Business of Salmon & Dusk reveals what happens when life takes you off the edge of every map.
