This month also saw the release of Tim Aker's Dead of Veridon! his stand alone hardboiled detective adventure from the man who brought you Heart of Veridon showcases the adventures of disowned aristocrat Jacob Burn and his backtalking anansi associate, Wilson, as they investigate a strange plague infecting the city's underwater residents, the Fehn... have provided a cracking review of the book
, praising Akers's 'superior world-building', his 'captivating' monsters and concluding that: 'Those who enjoy their steampunk tech with a high dose of technofantasy, their “punk” to be the criminal element in a corrupt society, and pulpy dialogue should pick up Dead of Veridon. Though if reading it at a beach, you may find yourself eyeing the water warily from time to time.'
