About this product
- DescriptionA thrilling tale from the author who inspired Alfred Hitchcock! The Club of Friends may t have liked Alexander Skeat very much, but one should meet his Maker so violently, so mysteriously...Though Skeat may have been the first, he wouldn't be the last. Found dead in London with wounds but a small incision beneath his shoulder, Skeat's demise was written off by many at first. But when the gentlemen of the Club of Friends thought more about the account of the policeman who found him--of the black, winged creature hulking over Skeat's body--they realized there must be more to the crime than they'd imagined. It takes little time for panic to stretch across London, Europe, and the world as its attacks range wider and occur with greater frequency. Is it really the Bat, as it becomes kwn, that obliterates the Alfred Memorial? Common science seems helpless, but then, this is common beast!
