The Beast is coming. History will be remade. Since the assassination of Queen Victoria in 1840, a cabal of prominent men ― including King George V, HRH Prince Albert, Benjamin Disraeli, and Isambard Kingdom Brunel ― has received guidance from the Afterlife. The spirit of a dead mystic, Abdu El Yezdi, has helped them to steer the empire into a period of unprecedented peace and creativity. But on the eve of a groundbreaking alliance with the newly formed Greater German Confed-eration, scientists, surgeons, and engineers are being abducted ― including Brunel! The government, in search of answers, turns to the Afterlife, only to find that Abdu El Yezdi is now refusing to speak with the living. Enter the newly knighted Sir Richard Francis Burton, fresh from his discovery of the source of the Nile. Appointed the king’s agent, he must trace the missing luminaries and solve the mystery of El Yezdi’s silence. But the Beast has been summoned. How can the famous explorer fulfill his mission when his friends and loved ones are being picked off, one by one, by what appears to be a supernatural entity ― by, perhaps, Abdu El Yezdi himself?
