Description

Christmas comes to Arkham Horror in this action-packed eldritch adventure full of secret whispers, haunted streets, and a lost actor falling through time

Raquel Malone Gutierrez is running away, although she won’t admit that to herself. Suffering from hearing loss after an illness, the former music teacher wants to find a way to retain her independence, but only a wealthy relative offers any hope of that. Put to work in her aunt Nova’s Kingsport dance hall, Raquel stumbles upon a mystery when her new hearing aids begin picking up conversations that no one else can hear. As Christmas draws closer, Raquel realizes the voice comes from a hunted man lost in time. Now she must do everything she can to free him before the monsters chasing him can catch up and break through.

Reviews

"get some Christmas cheer with a good dose of chills (and not from the temperature!) with The Bootlegger’s Dance. You won’t be disappointed."

Cosmic Circus, on The Bootlegger's Dance

"a perfect blend of speculative, mystic and Christmas horror though so if you enjoy those things or the previous Arkham books I think you will enjoy this one."

What You Tolkien About, on The Bootleggers Dance

"Fans of the Arkham Files universe will likely look at this going forward as the definitive holiday Arkham tale."

Arkham Historian, on Bootlegger's Dance

"Rosemary Jones is an author I trust to infuse their stories with interesting pulp fiction vibes that the Arkham line are known for while also peppering in the investigators that we know and love."
