Vulnerable

What is Vulnerable?

Vulnerable is a 6000 word short story which takes place just before the start of The Jacq of Spades.



Eleanora Bryce faces prison for a crime she didn’t commit.

In the far future domed city of Dickens, no mercy is given.

So when Eleanora Bryce finds her husband dead at his own hand, she finds herself trapped between the truth and his mountain of debt. When Eleanora refuses to speak with the constable investigating the case, he suspects her of murder.

Eleanora faces prison - or worse - unless she can find a way out of Dickens. But can she bear to return to the city which ruined her husband and murdered her son?

It seems all hope is lost, until one small clue is found.

Suspense. Danger. Romance. A short companion story to the Red Dog Conspiracy steampunk crime fiction series.
