jackalTake a retired spy, a couple of damsels in distress, a few henchmen, and add a crotchety old woman who wields a cane. What do you get? Jackal.

Rupert was used to living his life in the shadows, remaining unseen and unnoticed as he gathered information in service to King and Country. Then one day a carriage shows up, and he discovers he’s inherited an entire family of women. As he considers what the future holds, he has only one thought: There is no shadow big enough.

Will he be able to protect his new family as their presence forces him into the type of visibility he’s long shunned? Rupert is prepared to sacrifice his privacy and the life of solitude he’s built for himself, but will God ask him to make the ultimate sacrifice?
