When The Broken Sun, an ancient artefact said to lead to the lost city of Atlantis, is stolen from the British Museum, Jack, Scarlet and Mr Doyle embark on a hunt across Europe to find it.
But just as the artefact is within reach, their beloved secretary is mysteriously poisoned.
In their race against time to find the antidote, the team uncovers a deadly plan, to attack the Houses of Parliament.
Though no one has banked on another shocking discovery - that Mr Doyle's long-dead son may still be alive...
Darrell Pitt began his lifelong appreciation of Victorian literature when he read the Sherlock Holmes stories as a child, quickly moving on to H.G. Wells and Jules Verne. This early reading led to a love of comics, science fiction and all things geeky. Darrell is now married with one daughter. He lives in Melbourne. There are three Jack Mason Adventures to date: The Firebird Mystery, The Secret Abyss and The Broken Sun.
