A genius criminologist haunted by his past. A brilliant detective with everything stacked against him. A mysterious murderer that can’t be stopped.
It has been two years since Jack the Ripper stalked the streets of London. Two years in which the East End slowly returned to normality.
And then the killings start again.
When Detective Jonas Handy finds himself faced with a terrifying spate of new murders, he has nowhere to turn except Doctor Carter “Jigsaw” Jackson: a man whose knowledge of the criminal brain is unmatched in Victorian London.
The two men find themselves in a desperate race against time to find the murderer before any more people die. A race that will take them from the murky world of the East End to the even more shady world of the Victorian upper classes.
Ripper Street meets Sherlock Holmes in this gripping new thriller from Richard Ayre, author of A Life Eternal.
