The London Monster
A flesh and blood monster stalks the streets of London, causing bloodshed, outrage and mass hysteria. James and Alasdair meet innocent victims, scurrilous liars and the 18th Century’s greatest prankster.
The Loremen are Alasdair Beckett-King & James Shakeshaft.
Music from La Lettre De Manon Valse played by Megone’s Orchestra, 1905.
