About the Book:
Her real name is Eva Strange, although most people know her by her obligatory city registration number: 0004511477.  ‘Sevens’ to her friends.  Of which she has very few.

With her trademark fedora, her shaded welder’s eyeglasses, and her stoic loneliness, Eva is a distant cousin of Phillip Marlow and Sam Spade.  She is also a special detective for a newly formed adjunct to the police force — the White Patrol — a secret intelligence unit charged with ferreting out black sorcery in a future world rotten with magic.  And like Spade and Marlow before her, Eva is about to unlock a horrifying conspiracy — this one threatening the very fabric of space and time.

With echoes of Lovecraft, fantasy pulps, and neo-futuristic noir, The Miniaturist unfolds in feverish, dreamy bullet-time, an acid trip for lovers of all things dark and fantastic.
