The False Rose
The False RoseJakob Wegelius, illustrated by Jakob Wegelius
Sally Jones is back!
“You have asked me to write down everything I know about the man they used to call Shetland Jack. And I will; I will tell you about his hard life. Then, you will find out the awful truth of his mysterious disappearance.
However, the story of Shetland Jack didn’t end when his ship was found abandoned in Glasgow’s docks. Now, Jack’s fate has become intertwined with my own. I must also write about this, even though it will be hard for me. Sometimes, I just want to forget about the long winter in the house on Oswald Street and all the bad things that happened there.
Your friend, Sally Jones.”
In The False Rose we delve into the mystery surrounding the ship The Hudson Queen. The search for the truth takes the ship’s crew – engineer Sally Jones and Skipper Henry Koskela – to Scotland and Glasgow’s underworld, and their journey takes a fateful turn. For Sally Jones, life itself is at stake.
This is a stand-alone but also a sequel to the August Prize-winning books The Legend of Sally Jones and The Murderer’s Ape.
