New York: Simon & Schuster, (2015). SIGNED first edition - A gripping stand-alone historical novel - In the fall of 1888, Jack the Ripper brutally slaughtered and mutilated five prostitutes in Londons seamy Whitechapel District; he has haunted us ever since because he was never caught. In this reimagining Jacks personal story is entwined with that of an Irish journalist who covered the case, knew the principals, charted the investigation, and at last, stymied, went off in a bold new direction. The New York Times Review called this a dark, bloody triumph . . . convincingly mad, alternatively even-tempered, hallucinatory and cackling. . . its race to capture the murder is beautifully tense, and it has one of the best twists I can remember in any recent historical thriller. SIGNED on the title page and dated in the year of publication. Bibliography. 309 pp.
Condition: Fine in glossy illustrated wrappers.
