Soon a Russian spy (and Doc’s sidekick Tomlinson) join the hunt, and Doc becomes convinced the letters contain a secret that cannot be made public at any cost.

The World Before Us
Jane Standen was a babysitter in her teens when five-year-old Lily Eliot disappeared on her watch. Now, 20 years later, Jane is an archivist at London’s Chester Museum. While doing research on Victorian-era rural asylums, Jane comes across a reference to the Whitmore Hospital for Convalescent Lunatics, and a young woman called N, who disappeared in 1877 in the same woods where Lily vanished. N’s fate was linked to George Farrington, a botanist whose Inglewood House was located near the asylum. Jane flees to the woods in Northern England, hoping to make sense of things.
