The House That Jack Built by Guy Adams

The novel “The House That Jack Built” by Guy Adams was published for the first time in 2009.

When Gwen Cooper blocks a shoplifter during her shopping and the police intervene to arrest her, her old colleague Andy tells her about the strange death of a boy in the vicinity of an old house called Jackson Leaves, which seems to be tied to a peak of chronon energy similar but not the same as that coming from the Cardiff Rift.

Captain Jack Harkness hired an alien who came to spend his retirement on Earth using the name Alexander Martin to work for Torchwood as a freelance doctor when they need someone to do the job Owen Harper used to do. The Jackson Leaves investigation brings to Jack’s mind old memories because in 1906 he became the house’s first owner.
