From the Back Cover:


Born the symbol of a nation and a sacred legacy handed down from generation to generation, Union Jack is the people's hero.

Representing the indomitable spirit of Great Britain, he fights for God and country...for England and the world!

Armed with a silver dagger and Webley .455-caliber pistol, Joey Chapman is the latest countryman to take up the mantle. A reluctant hero, Chapman assumed the righteous role following the passing of Lord Falsworth, the original Union Jack.

Undead activity is on the rise in England. When a friend is felled by a vampire's bite, Union Jack takes up the trail. But this brood of blood-suckers does not seek simply to feed: Its members are on the hunt for the most coveted icon in all of history, the Holy Grail, hoping to stimulate evolution among their population. Now, with another friend infected, Union Jack must turn back the vampiric onslaught or risk the lives of all he holds dear!
