A dark mystery on the high seas.
Ever wonder what happened to James Findlay (aka Jack the Ripper) after ‘Doctor Jack’?

Now on his way to Australia by steamship, and temporarily free from the Men in Grey’s control, James is determined to continue his experiments. Until a murder is discovered. He must use his medical training to hide the truth, and discover why passengers begin to fall ill – or the ship will be quarantined, and his work discovered. But time is running out. A mysterious woman threatens to uncover his secrets.
Has ‘Jack’ finally met his match?

A James Findlay mini-adventure. ‘Blood Ties‘ follows on from the original ‘Doctor Jack’ novella in the first book of ‘The Adventures of Viola Stewart’ series.
