E. S. THOMSON    Book Number: 84730    Product format: Hardback

Gothic, gory and glorious, this is one of the popular Jem Flockhart series. Summoned to the riverside by the desperate, scribbled note of an old friend, Jem and Will Quartermain find themselves on board the seamen's floating hospital, an old hulk known only as The Blood. Prejudice, ambition and murder seethe beneath a veneer of medical respectability. On shore, a known prostitute is found drowned in a derelict boatyard. A man leaps to his death into the Thames, driven mad by poison and fear. Are the events linked? Courting danger in the opium dens and brothels of the waterfront, Jem and Will embark on a quest that takes them from the dissecting tables of a private anatomy school to the squalor of the dockside mortuary in this dark and terrible mystery. 375pp in glamorous 2018 first edition hardback.
