This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
A short story from the world of Department 19.
In 1891, Abraham Van Helsing and a group of friends faced Dracula, the world’s first vampire – and won. The survivors of that battle founded Department 19, and have been secretly saving the world ever since. A highly classified archive exists recording every act of bravery in that time.
That archive is now open. These are the Department 19 files.
Safely returned from the killing fields of Europe, Quincey Harker is bored and restless, his mind full of the terrible things he has seen, things he cannot seem to forget. So when his father invites him to hear a proposition from him and his friends, Quincey is hopeful that a new project may be just the thing to take his mind off the monsters he encountered, terrible creatures that flew above the ground and killed without mercy. He has no idea quite how wrong he is…
Praise for the Department 19 Series:
“High action, original and gripping” – The Sun
“Bram Stoker can stop turning in his grave: his 21st-century legacy extends beyond Twilight.” – The Telegraph
"Absolutely outstanding…" – The Book Bag
About the author
Before quitting his job in publishing to write Department 19, Will Hill worked as a bartender, a bookseller and a door-to-door charity worker. He grew up in the north-east of England, is scared of spiders, and is a big fan of cats. He lives in east London with his girlfriend, where he splits his time between staring out of the window and staring at a computer screen. The latter tends to be more productive.
