Abstract:

"Jack London has worn many hats in his young life--sailor, law enforcement officer, prizefighter, and most recently gold miner in the Klondike--getting by with the occasional odd job while pursuing his true vocation: writing. But Jack never expects to find himself investigating a murder case on behalf of San Francisco's mayor. Two saloon hall girls have been killed in a similar and precise fashion that appears to be the work of a madman. Jack learns that both girls arrived in the city together on the same ship from Alaska, The Jewel of the North. And it will take all of his wit and skill to unravel a conspiracy far more dangerous than he can possibly imagine."--Back cover.
