Tientsin, January 1935.
Freshly cashiered from the Royal Italian Air Force, Felice Sabatini is looking for a job.
Stalked by a dangerous would-be paramour, Grand Duchess Helena Theodora Saratova is looking for a way out of town.
But there's more going on.
Men with guns.
The Black Dragon Society.
And a ghost of sorts is haunting Tientsin. Getting out of town will be no joke.
Cynical Little Angels is a stand alone novelette, and a prequel to The Ministry of Thunder, published by Acheron Books.
