Time Hunter series

by Iain McLaughlin & Claire Bartlett

      Here is another adventure for those intrepid time travelers, Honoré Lechasseur and Emily Blandish. This time they are revisiting the recent past, in a mysterious office block that is the headquarters of Dragon Industry. Nobody is home, but the place is haunted by ghosts, all of women from different time periods who come and go between their own time and 1995. But why does Dragon Industry have a familiar-looking logo, and who is controlling the ghosts?

This is part two of a two-part story begun in Time Hunter: The Severed Man (also reviewed on this site). Anybody who can cast their mind back to that hugely imaginative TV series Sapphire and Steel and like this reviewer sat mesmerized in front of it ought to enjoy this one. Two time travelers wandering around an empty, echoing building, scores of unhappy ghosts and a sinister character at its heart with a bargain to make. The first volume was rather disparate, but this second part sees it all coming to a satisfying conclusion, and leaving the reader ready for more at the same time. If Dr Who was just for adults it might contain this sort of thing, so if you wish it was then sit back and enjoy this imaginative novella.
