Kathryn Blake

Interlude

Even London sleeps, eventually. Kate moved through silent streets, searching, the euphoria of 2 am fading into a raw buzz of adrenaline, caffeine and too little sleep. She was somewhere near the Globe when they called in the Regent’s Park sighting, but though she reached for the radio she never answered it. John had picked […]

Strings

John found her in the small attic where she kept her equipment, the painting propped in front of her. “I thought that had gone?” “They’ll not be taking this week.” But not, he noted, they can’t; she was honest even in her perks. He stepped behind her for a squarer view, but it didn’t recommend […]

Who is the girl currently calling herself Kathryn Blake? Where does she come from and . . . where does she belong? To her potential employer, collecting […]

Find the Lady

Who is the girl currently calling herself Kathryn Blake? Where does she come from and . . . where does she belong?
