The Limehouse Golem is a Gothic murder mystery and is set in London in 1880.
In the dangerous Limehouse district, a series of murders have shaken the community. So monstrous and ruthless are these crimes, the press claim they’re the work of The Golem — a legendary creature from dark times.
Confronted by a murderer of a yet unknown kind and with no genuine leads, the police put the vastly experienced Detective Inspector Kildare on the case, a scapegoat for when the next victim surfaces.
