A Hundred Thousand Dragons
by Dolores Gordon-Smith

The latest ‘Jack Haldean’ mystery, set in the Roaring Twenties

A hundred thousand dragons lie, underneath an Arabian sky.

How do a few lines of poetry, a chance encounter in a London hotel, and a death in Sussex lead to a lost city of Arabia, and to the tombs of the Whispering Dead? Jack Haldean has evaded the truth for years, but now, enmeshed in the web of murder, theft and deception, he must find the answer and face up to the truth – a truth as deadly as any dragon . . .


This satisfying mix of mystery and high-concept adventure features glamour, romance, action, style, and charm and is sure to appeal to a wide range of readers

Booklist Starred Review

Part traditional British mystery and part Indiana Jones adventure, this is filled with action as Jack attempts to save himself and those he cares about most.

Library Journal

Traditional mystery fans will be well satisfied.
