The Cursed Bones of Sergeant Boom

Kane & Fable: short story

What would you do if a dead corgi followed you home from a funeral?

When Kane and the ghost of his ex-husband, Simeon, investigate the accidental resurrection of a long-dead corgi with their trusty crew, they find an ancient plot to kill a king, a necromancer and his witch sidekick behaving badly in London, and a heart beating beneath the chancel of a royal chapel.

But whose heart is it? And why are there so many ghosts everywhere?
