ℚ Anarchy of the Mice: Third Chance Enterprises [1] - Jeff Bond

Today we have the pleasure of meeting up with author to talk about Anarchy of the Mice (, Jeff Bond, 462 pages), an Action-Adventure, book one in the Third Chance Enterprises series.

"Thrilling! A really fun and exciting read. I loved the way the author, Jeff Bond, was so successful in bringing the 1940's pulp fiction feel to the book. PI's, shady organizations, complex characters working together to fight evil. This book has everything. Well written with dynamic characters that were present with such fluidity it was hard to put the book down for even a moment." ~ Amazon Verified Purchase

"Bond’s three main characters leap off the page ... hurtling from one life-threatening challenge to the next ... a gripping thriller, sure to please its target audience and likely to have crossover appeal as well." — BlueInk Reviews (starred)

Today we have the pleasure of meeting up with author to talk about Closer Than She Knows (, Thomas Nelson, 352 pages), a Romantic Suspense.

📚 Segment 13: Mudlarks and the Silent Highwayman - Alan M. Clark

Welcome to the penultimate segment in the serialisation of Mudlarks and the Silent Highwayman, an Historical Supernatural Illustrated Novelette by (, IFD Publishing, 69 pages). A story of hope enduring in the midst of illness and death on the banks of the river Thames in 1884 Victorian London.

Trivia: The Port of London Authority (PLA) regulates all metal detecting and digging on the Thames foreshore (any scraping of the surface with any type of implement is considered digging) and any finds must be reported to the Museum Of London. On 17 December 2016, Tobias Neto found one of only 16 Victoria Crosses that were awarded to British soldiers on 5 November 1854 after the Battle of Inkerman (one of the earliest ever awarded), which has been narrowed down to belonging to one of two particular officers, and which is worth around £50,000. Since then regulations have been tightened, permits have increased in price, and, as of this year, mudlark licences which allowed digging of the foreshore up to a depth of 1.2 metres (3 feet 11 inches) are no longer being issued; standard licenses which allow digging up to 7.5 cm (3 inches) can still be purchased for £85 per year.

Synopsis

On a summer night in 1932, twelve-year-old Joel Fitchett wanders into an East Texas diner badly beaten and carrying his unconscious brother, Clancy. Though both boys claim they have no memory of what happened, the horrific details are etched into their minds as deep as the scar left across Joel’s face.

Trivia: mudlarking saw a revival after World War II when it became about treasure hunting and archeology, and in 1949, writer and archeologist Ivor Noël Hume started to explore the Thames foreshore. In 1956 he published 'Treasure In The Thames' which is considered an important resource to this day.

      The grayness seemed to absorb Albert. His mind having nothing visual to grab onto, he lost all sense of direction and feared that he might make a circle, running into the boy again. Albert stopped and turned, saw the boy not too far away. He’d picked up his stick, gone back to poking at the mud, and didn’t appear to be a threat.

If, like me, you are finding Victorian London and the Thames fascinating, you might also like Alan M. Clark's Jack The Ripper Victims series and his guest post "Nipper Dippers, Mug-hunters, and Bludgers: Dangers on the Streets of the Victorian East End". This series is from the point of view of the victims: who were they? What was life like for them in London of the time period? What were their struggles, their hopes, their regrets? What of the decisions they made in life might have delivered them into the bloody hands of the Ripper?

We hope you are enjoying Mudlarks and The Silent Highwayman; here is segment 9.

📚 Segment 8: Mudlarks and the Silent Highwayman - Alan M. Clark

Welcome to the eighth segment in the serialisation of Mudlarks and the Silent Highwayman, an Historical Supernatural Illustrated Novelette by (, IFD Publishing, 69 pages).

It's 1884 Victorian London on the busy and sewage-ridden Thames, which is also the source of small treasures for the poorest children in the City, the mudlarks.' Mudlarks and the Silent Highwayman is a story of hope enduring in the midst of illness and death.

If you missed the previous segments, you can catch up, find out more about the story, its serialisation and Alan M. Clark here, or jump to the segment you missed by using the links below.

Trivia: the mud of the river Thames is anaerobic (de-oxygenated) which means that objects thrown or lost in the river are well preserved. Over 90% of the Museum Of London's medieval metals collection comes from modern mudlarks, and, over the last 30 years, the museum has acquired over 90,000 objects recovered from the River Thames foreshore which is the longest archaeological site in Britain.

📚 Segment 5: Mudlarks and the Silent Highwayman - Alan M. Clark

Thank you for joining us for the fifth segment in the serialisation of Mudlarks and the Silent Highwayman, an Historical Supernatural Illustrated Novelette by (, IFD Publishing, 69 pages).

Mudlarks and the Silent Highwayman is set in 1884 Victorian London, rife with "the dangers of illness from the Thames", such as "The Great Stink, a nearly two-month-long period in the summer of 1858, during which those who could afford to do so, evacuated London to get away from the smell coming off the river.

In such periods of fouled water and air, the poor, needing the income, or fearing unemployment, continued to work, despite the dangers of disease, real or perceived.

This is a fanciful story about a mudlark and the choices he made within that environment."
- Alan M. Clark

📚 Segment 4: Mudlarks and the Silent Highwayman - Alan M. Clark

Welcome to the fourth segment in the serialisation of Mudlarks and the Silent Highwayman, an Historical Supernatural Illustrated Novelette by (, IFD Publishing, 69 pages) set in 1884 Victorian London.

"A time when the majority of transportation employed horses, the streets were littered with dung and awash in over ten thousand gallons of equine urine each day. That and the leakage from overflowing cesspits and privy vaults found its way into the River Thames when the rains came. As a result, the river reeked.

The people of London recognized that much illness came from the river. The common belief was that illness was born on bad smells—miasma as it was called—and that people became ill when breathing the malodorous air. The city was in fact suffering outbreaks of deadly waterborne illness during a time when much of the science of microbes was still under debate.

I write this during the COVID-19 flu pandemic, and while knowing something of the 1918 Spanish influenza pandemic that infected approximately 500 million people. In comparison, the waterborne epidemics of Victorian London were small events, except to those who suffered through them."
- Alan M. Clark.

📚 Segment 3: Mudlarks and the Silent Highwayman - Alan M. Clark

Welcome to the third segment in the serialisation of Mudlarks and the Silent Highwayman, an Historical Supernatural Illustrated Novelette by (, IFD Publishing, 69 pages). A story of hope enduring in the midst of illness and death.

So, what is a "mudlark"? Alan M. Clark explains in his author note:

"I have been immersed in the history of Victorian London for nearly a decade while writing the Jack the Ripper Victims Series, novels about the lives of those killed by the Whitechapel Murderer. In the midst of research for the stories, I discovered all sorts of occupations of the period that involved scavenging and recycling. While that sounds good in the world of today that suffers such destruction from our various wastes, the recycling in Victorian times took a terrible toll on the health of those who did the work.

During the Industrial Revolution of the 19th century, jobs were scarce and many achingly poor Londoners became willing to do the worst things in order to earn a crust. Toshers scavenged in the sewers. Bone grubbers collected bones door to door or by going through the rubbish of taverns or households that could afford to serve joints of beef, pork, or mutton.

      “Since we both spotted the cloth about the same time,” Albert said, “it’s only fair we share what it earns.”
      “You did your best, I suppose,” Turvey said with a smirk.
      Despite the loss of the canvas sack, Albert had enjoyed having the help and the companionship, something he rarely had in scavenging. “What if we got the others—all of us scavengers—to search the river together, then shared the profits of what we found? We’d do better than we each do alone, guarding our secrets.”

📚 Segment 1: Mudlarks and the Silent Highwayman - Alan M. Clark

Clark's Facebook page, on the Facebook pages of the TBR-Trimming Book Club, Flying Cake, FriendsNecon, Alone with the Horrors, The River’s Edge, Kindle Kitchen, Ripperology Books and More, Books Reviews and More, and on GreyDogTales blog.

Each of the 14 segments will have at least one illustration.

“Alan M. Clark has a remarkable ability to evoke the past as a tangible, breathing thing, immersing the reader in times long gone – and thankfully long gone, for most. In this novelette, he combines his keen eye for period with a sense of menace and melancholy which yet bears a glimmer of hope. A moving read.” —John Linwood Grant, author of A Persistence of Geraniums & The Assassin’s Coin

Synopsis

On a sparkling spring morning in the Blue Ridge, small-town realtor Miranda Davis approached the tailgate market, intent on dealing with her whimsical cousin Skip’s unexpected arrival from New York. It turns out that Skip was on the run and, in his panic, grabbed his beloved tabby Duffy, recalling that Miranda had a recent part in solving a case down in Carolina. His predicament stemmed from intercepting code messages like “Countdown to D-Day,” playfully broadcasting the messages on his radio show over the nation-wide network, and subsequently forced to flee.
