  • About

    Spring-heeled Jack-he be bad and he be back…

    It is the winter of 1886 and in the slums of Whitechapel, prostitutes are being murdered. Two thousand year-old vampire, Spring-heeled Jack has arrived in London and is bent on seizing power over the supernatural world. Standing in his way is the unlikely duo of Inspector Thomas Grantham of The Yard and Randall Crane, a one hundred and fifty-three year old vampire. No one is safe from the clutches of Jack, not even those who hold the highest ranks in the country and, with more of Jack’s loyal followers due to arrive soon, Thomas and Randall face a race against time to find his lair before he strikes again. Can Thomas and Randall stop Jack before all is lost? Will they be able to discover Jack’s darkest secrets and prevent a catastrophe? Who is behind the clandestine 1886 club and just how far does its influence stretch? This is a tale of murder, explosions, plotting and revolution set against the dark Victorian backdrop of Whitechapel and its haunted, filthy alleyways.
