If you dare read this book you will see through a window into an unexposed part of the merchant marine. Crime existed in this world of seamen but for reasons unorthodox went undetected.
The case of ‘Jack The Ripper’ has recently uncovered a picture where a crewman on a German ship trading between London and Bremer Haven at that time could have been the elusive killer. The killings stopped but sometime later a man was arrested in New York for a similar murder and convicted and subsequently executed, this man was the one alluded to as a crewman on the German ship during the ‘Jack The Ripper’ murders.
The English detective Henry Carter from the small town of Runcorn on the Manchester Ship Canal stumbles across a clue after exhausting all avenues to find the killer of his sixteen year old niece. This thought provoking clue of a crewman on a ship docked in Runcorn overnight when his niece was brutally raped and murdered, begins to take shape. With the help of Vera his liberated lover and secretary of the Shipping Company, and his colleagues at Scotland Yard, he narrows the search to four crewmen on S.S.RANGOON.
