Lizzie's mother is dead.
Now, left in the care of her prim older sister, Lizzie fears her carefree, adventurous ways are over. But when tragedy strikes once more, she discovers a sinister web of lies and deception, of murders past and present, where fierce resentments and racial tensions boil beneath the illusion of civilization. Soon, Lizzie finds herself ensnared in a secret that stretches from the opium dens of British Columbia and the alleys of San Francisco to the isthmus of Panama and beyond.
And it's a secret that the murderer will do anything to protect.
Bucket of Blood blends the dark spirituality of BC’s coast with Chinese mythology and the blossoming discipline of Victorian science. Part BC history, part gothic mystery, Bucket of Blood is a grim journey through loss, self-discovery, redemption, and vengeance. Bucket of Blood will be released by Fox and Bee in September 2011.
