One day a shadow is cast on the Mechanical Circus, a rollicking seaside carnival where imagination meets machinery, when a tall, cloaked figure approaches the stand of Will Marchman, a young patent-medicine salesman. Thus begins the adventures of Will; Fanule Perfidor, commonly known as the Dog King; vampire Clancy Marrowbone; and Clancy's former lover, the mortal Simon Bentcross.


Jack Horwood has not had a home since his mother sold him to a pimp, has not had a family since he walked out on his army career. Now he spends his days chasing secrets for MI6 and his nights chasing pimps and men who buy children for sex, seemingly content until Gareth Flynn, his former Army CO and the man he fell for when he was seventeen, walks back into his life. Suddenly endings turn into new beginnings, two scared, abused boys need his help, and his past won’t let him go even as he tries to make a new life for himself.


Everyone deserves a second chance and a place to belong, but getting to that place isn’t always easy.


Especially for men who have made mistakes in the past, or those who are suffering from regret and rejection. Even after their dues are paid, they must convince others they’ve changed, that they still have something to offer… and they must convince themselves. Luckily they find friendship to hold them up when they need it most, and if they’re really lucky, that support will grow into love.
