In Yellow Jack, after their activities with the Guano ship Samantha James and Albert have succeeded in bringing Yellow Fever into Liverpool and have caused the deaths of several people. It looks like Anne may have been stricken with the fever herself thankfully it’s actually gallstones – still potentially very serious but her illness does finally bring James to his senses.
James and Albert also have to persuade Albert’s father, who is leading the enquiry into the Samantha trouble that it would be better to keep quiet about their involvement as it would undermine his extensive business too if word got out that a Frazer was involved.
