From New York Times bestselling author Philip Kerr, comes a story of a young man growing up in colonial America.

No one knows when “something infernal” crept into the heart of young Master Edgar, a well-bred British orphan in the hands of a cool stepfather in 19th century Richmond, Virginia, and under the care of the home’s educated and proper slave, Scipio. Was it when his actress mother died, years after moving Edgar and his brother from England to America? Was it during his strange education at the hands of the calculating Scipio? Or was it when he plotted another boy’s death so that he could gain entry, through the boy’s grave, into the underworld?

“The Pocket Handkerchief” by Philip Kerr is one of twenty short stories within Mulholland Books’ Strand Originals series.

Quotes & Awards

  • ”This eerie, fascinating tale gets a robust enhancement from Graeme Malcolm’s spirited narration. The underworld is splendidly portrayed in Philip Kerr’s short story when Edgar, a young British orphan, convinces his stepfather’s slave, Scipio, to help him visit his dead mother via a ‘door’ to the other side. Malcolm’s distinct characterizations of Edgar and Scipio leave no question as to who is speaking during their conversations, and the ease with which he transitions between their two dialects produces the effect of multiple readers. The union of story and performance is an auditory treat for historical fiction and mystery fans alike. The Pocket Handkerchief, part of Mulholland Books’ Strand Originals series, is a delectable snack of a listen. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.”
