THE BLOOD


THE BLOOD

E. S. THOMSON    Book Number: 89742    Product format: Paperback

The blood, the bones, the crumbling hospital, this is a dark and gothic first class piece of historical crime writing, a tale of Victorian London to freeze your blood. A world of secrets, murder and betrayal lie behind the London waterfront. Summoned to the riverside by the desperate, scribbled note of an old friend, Jem Flockhart and Will Quartermain find themselves on board the seamen's floating hospital, an old hulk known only as The Blood, where prejudice, murder and ambition seethe beneath a veneer of medical respectability. On shore, a young woman, 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. The events are linked, but how? Courting danger in the opium dens and brothels of the waterfront, certain that the Blood lies at the heart of the puzzle, Jem and Will embark on a quest to uncover the truth in a hunt that takes them from the dissecting tables of a private anatomy school to the squalor of the dock-side mortuary. They find themselves involved in a dark and terrible mystery. Large glamorous softback, 375pp.
