The Facts in the Case of the Departure of Miss Finch (Second Edition) by Neil Gaiman, Michael Zuli (Illustrated by)

He's come to write a script so he hasn't told anyone he's in London.  However, they find him anyway.  A friend calls and invites him to dinner and theater the next night.  They have a visitor and could use another person to fill out the party.  He agrees.  He doesn't realize it could be dangerous.

Dark Horse Books and Edelweiss gave me the opportunity to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published May 10th.

This graphic novel shows you a world unlike any I've seen before.  Of course, I've never gone to a circus.

When he meets his evening companion, she's all bundled up and wearing a hat.  The theater isn't open that night, so they decide to do a circus instead.  While they chat about eating sushi later, she tells them about all the dangers of eating raw fish.  At least the circus changes the conversation.

They find a strong man, a knife throwing show, meet a vampiress, and see people live and die right in front of their eyes.  It's a show but The Theatre of Night’s Dreaming has some secrets, too.

The last room is where you get your wishes fulfilled.  Nobody jumps at the chance, so the guide grabs Ms. Finch and takes her back...

She had an usual wish.
