Overview

Spring-Heeled Jack was a mysterious figure reported throughout the nineteenth century. He was blamed for a number of violent attacks - including murder, mainly on young women. His reign of terror started in London, and spread throughout Great Britain covering the period 1837 to 1904. One terrifying attack, on the daughter of a wealthy businessman, was the subject of a Times newspaper report in 1838. This book is based on that report. A modern link to an old mystery, a love story, set in the Welsh Mountains.

Jack's bizarre appearance - huge, bulbous red eyes, pointed ears and claw-like fingers - and physical peculiarities - his ability to belch flames at random, into the face of his victims, and his ability to leap great distances - point to a creature not of this world. He has never been successfully identified...
