John Milne's gripping novel tells the story of an enigmatic figure, known only as the Moody Man, who preys on the vulnerable in London's seedy underbelly. From the first time he crosses paths with the young prostitute Lizzie, the Moody Man makes her feel alive for the first time in years. Soon Lizzie is a regular at his shadowy hideaway, and she's not the only one: the Moody Man is also fond of the streetwise teenager Sammy and the vulnerable, alcoholic widow Bess. But as Lizzie starts to fall for the Moody Man, she becomes increasingly aware that he's not all he seems. With its sharp, evocative writing and mesmerizing characters, The Moody Man is a gripping, darkly suspenseful novel that will stay with you long after you finish reading.; 8vo; $7.00.
