About the novel

London, 1836. A young aristocrat is murdered after finding incriminating letters from a secret society.

My own personal opinion is that "they" are an ideological movement not governed by a tight group of people but by an idea that holds them all together. I personally believe that ideas take on a life of their own within groups of humanity so that the ideas themselves almost become biological entities that struggle for survival and dominance and would do anything possible to keep their dominance once attained. But that's my opinion. Maybe some others have more to say on your question.

I find it very interesting that at about the same time this idea crosses my mind I read and hear about it from three independent sources. When One sees how the "establishment" of science is working through the media, politics, academia, and within itself, it does not take much to go to the next level, which is, "Is the proverbial 'THEY' a real entity that operates like a secret society? And, how long have 'THEY' been around? What think you?

There were many routes I could have taken, so I didn't include the Lunar Society of Birmingham, but instead focused on Comte de Buffon's ideas and then a couple of societies, especially the Geological Society of London at the time when Lyell was its president.

Wow! What an intriguing idea for a book. I'll have to buy it and see if it lines up with other info I have studdied about this issue. Does the book talk about the Lunar Society of Birmingham? I'm sure such a book could not avoid such a topic.
