The Providence Rider by Robert McCammon
Paperback – Lividian Publications – Aug 2022 – 346 pages
In the winter of 1703, Matthew Corbett’s Manhattan neighborhood is shaken by explosions. Someone is trying-and trying very hard-to get his attention. That someone is a shadowy figure from Matthew’s past: the elusive Professor Fell. The professor, it turns out, has a problem of his own, one that requires the exclusive services of Matthew Corbett.
As a result, Matthew travels from New York to Pendulum Island in the distant Bermudas, encountering a truly Dickensian assortment of memorable, often grotesque, antagonists.
