Publisher Description

“[A] dark, bloody triumph...convincingly mad, alternatively even-tempered, hallucinatory and cackling...the book’s characters are great, 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.” —The New York Times Book Review

“Absolutely riveting....Authentic in tone, well researched, and darkly atmospheric of Victorian London, this historical thriller combines the quiet plausibility of the psychopath in Thomas Harris’ Red Dragon (1981) with the menacing tone of Kenneth Cameron’s The Frightened Man (2009).” —Booklist

The electrifying new thriller from New York Times bestseller Stephen Hunter takes you deep inside the mind of the most notorious serial killer of all time: Jack the Ripper.

THE DEVELOPERS ARE HELL BOUND ,

I don't even like reading but I loved this book, it takes a bit to keep up with in terms of switching between rippers diary and the journalists though

I, Ripper

Fascinating read! Big fan of Earl & Bob Lee but this novel is brilliantly different and is quite an opus. Great woven references to Lecter and old songs. Needs a second read to pick up all of the tapestry. Kudos.

Mr. Hunter Does It Again.

Having read all of Mr. Hunter's books, I was not surprised. I was stricken by his genius.

As in "The Third Bullet" he has taken a true crime story,which has been studied, researched and speculated upon, and, not only, giving a totally accurate and logical twist, but making it completely engrossing.

I was initially put off a bit by the semi-florrid language, but once I got used to it, I moved right along. His descriptions of London neighborhoods and the people populating them, seemed to have come from someone who lived those times and walked those streets. I could almost smell the coal smoke and and horse dung.

Mr. Hunter has always been an extremely good author. He has gotten better and more valuable with age. Like good whiskey.
