On a cold night, Stephen Dene went to the Eton boathouse to perform a desperate act. But someone stopped him along the way, sending his life in a new and decidedly strange direction–leading him to London, to two new friends, and to a world of shadows and mystery.

From New York Times bestselling author of 13 Little Blue Envelopes, Key to the Golden Firebird and The Name of the Star, The Boy in the Smoke is a thrilling prequel to The Shades of London series.

I love how she puts her reader's needs before her's.  She gave a polite warning to those not suited with the suicide attempt. I like that. It shows that she cares about her readers being people who may have lost a loved one to suicide or have attempted it. :)
