BBC Books have released details about the latest ebook released in time for the 2012 Christmas Special, Devil in the Smoke
: An Adventure for 
The Great Detective. Written by Justin Richards, it features Madame Vastra, Jenny and Strax and is released on Dec 18, priced £1.99 (epub only). Check out the details below and click on the cover for a bigger version.

Madame Vastra, the fabled Lizard Woman of Paternoter Row, knew death in many shapes and forms. But perhaps one of the most bizarre of these was death by snow…

On a cold day in December, two young boys, tired of sweeping snow from the workhouse yard, decide to build a snowman – and are confronted with a strange and grisly mystery. In horrified fascination, they watch as their snowman begins to bleed…

The search for answers to this impossible event will plunge Harry into the most hazardous – and exhilarating – adventure of his life. He will encounter a hideous troll. He will dine with a mysterious parlour maid. And he will help The Great Detective, Madame Vastra, save the world from the terrifying Devil in the Smoke.

  1. Someone posted elsewhere that an audio book version of this is expected later. That's fine by me. I hate e-books, so the only way I plan to enjoy this (and Angel's Kiss) is when the audio versions come out. I have my fingers crossed that BBC Books will follow the lead of Simon & Schuster's Starfleet Corps of Engineers e-book series and publish a permanent/archival print omnibus of these e-books later. Otherwise we're looking at the future equivalents of Marco Polo and Tenth Planet episode 4. Believe it.
