William Sutton signing Lawless and the House of Electricity

  • [William Sutton signing Lawless and the House of Electricity]
WILLIAM SUTTON will be signing LAWLESS AND THE HOUSE OF ELECTRICITY at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore on Thursday 31st August from 6 – 7pm.

The new drawing mistress feels inquisitive eyes upon her as she arrives to take up her post at a country house. Ex-street urchin Molly’s quick-witted candour earns her favour with the old Earl and his guests, but the keen-eyed butler sees through her pose of gentility. The House of Roxbury welcomes a cavalcade of poets and magicians, explorers and cyclists, scientists and surgeons. But Molly begins to suspect that darker secrets lurk in the gardens. Who works so late into the night in the menagerie glasshouse laboratories?

In London’s East End, a body tumbles from a ship. Sergeant Lawless unearths connections between a newly arrived aristocrat, an unfortunate fire, and a mysterious vanishment. The shadow of European machinations looms over the capital, threatening royals and politicians, but evidence from an accidental blast sends him into the English shires.

William Sutton comes from Dunblane, Scotland. He has written for The Times and the Fortean Times, acted in the longest play in the world, and played cricket for Brazil. He writes for international magazines about language, music and futurology. His plays have been produced on radio and in London fringe theatres.
