London, 1888


Whitechapel is full of the noise of August Bank Holiday celebrations. Everyone is in high spirits until a woman – Martha Turner – is discovered brutally murdered.

Her friend, Esther, a lowly seamstress turned female sleuth, is determined to find the killer.
A young police officer, Jack Enright, takes the lead on the case, and he and Esther soon embark on a professional – and personal – relationship.


When another murder is committed and whispers of a slasher calling himself Jack the Ripper start flowing through the London streets, the search becomes even more desperate.


The police are on the wrong track and the young couple take matters into their own hands, and soon find themselves navigating through London’s dark underbelly.


Can they find the murderer before he kills again? Will anyone listen to their suspicions?
Or will this dark presence continue to haunt Whitechapel…?

 

A smaller book that was quite enjoyable.  I've read a number of books about Jack the Ripper but this one is different, which makes it a break from all the others.

When I got this book I did not realize that there were more books in the series.  I am interested in reading the others but am so far behind in all the books I have that I have not read, that I think for now they will just go on "ye ol' wish list"!

It's fast reading and only 198 pages so easy to carry to the beach or any restful place you might go.  It's also available as an E book.

I'm constantly amazed at the number of Victorian murder mystery series you manage to find. You're quite the detective yourself. LOL
