In Terrible Times our erstwhile hero Eddie Dickens finds himself en-route to North America in the dubious care of professional chaperone Lady Constance Bustles, whose previous charges have all died under mysterious circumstances.
He finds himself sharing a berth with disreputable prospectors, some familiar faces (stuffed animal and human) from his past, and with the Great Gretcha who suffers from serious bouts of sleeping sickness.
