The Blooding of Jack Absolute Paperback



The brilliant prequel to JACK ABSOLUTE...London 1759 and Jack's life is easy.

A scholar at Westminster School, a master with cricket bat or billiard cue, the leader of a gang of bucks about the Town, he has both a girl he worships and a courtesan teaching him the more basic arts of love.

Yet he plans to give up all carousing, sit the examinations for Cambridge, find a career in any field he chooses.

If he can just stay out of trouble for one night...From the billiard halls and brothels of London to a clash of Empires on the Plains of Abraham, Jack's life is forever altered by the tragedies of that night.

Through duels, battles, frantic escapes and a brutal winter spent in a cave in Canada, the schoolboy will vanish, and a man appear.

But first he must learn to kill. To come of age, Jack Absolute must be blooded.
