DEADLY QUEST: “A reign of terror sweeps through the Victorian underworld as a menacing figure seeks to impose his will on the criminals of London.
On the abandoned wharves of the docklands and in the dangerous gaslit alleys of Whitechapel, hardened villains are being murdered, dealers in stolen goods and brothel keepers threatened.
The cobbles of the old city are running with blood, as pistol shots bark out death to any who resist.
Who can fight back to protect the poor and the oppressed? The detectives of Scotland Yard are baffled as the death toll mounts. There is, of course, William Quest – Victorian avenger. A man brought up to know both sides of the law.
But Quest faces dangers of his own.
Sinister watchers are dogging his footsteps through the fog, as Quest becomes the prey in a deadly manhunt, threatened by a vicious enemy, fighting for his life in a thrilling climax in the most dangerous rookery in Victorian London.
Dead Quest or Deadly Quest?”
An historical crime story by the author of The Shadow of William Quest, A Seaside Mourning and Wolfshead.
