London, September 1888
England's capitol is a dangerous place for the unwary: Mysterious shape-shifters haunt the streets, while a new kind of evil stalks the back alleys of the East End.
Enter Jacynda Lassiter, a Time Rover who's tasked with finding an overdue "tourist" and return him to 2057 before he changes history. When a fellow Time Rover is murdered, her mission becomes deeply personal. Can she trust the two Victorian gentlemen who come to her aid, or do they harbor their own dark secrets?
Soon Jack the Ripper will add to his bloody legacy, but he isn't the only threat in Whitechapel. Unless Jacynda can outwit a madman, her Victorian sojourn will rewrite history--and end at the point of a blade.
"Oliver's first Time Rovers book is a spellbinding, multilayered mystery with a bit of romance that will delight fans. She's done her research, skillfully recreating the sights and sounds of Victorian England with perfect detail, and she's equally adept at fast-forwarding into the future. Strong characters and realistic dialogue add to this exciting page-turner." Romantic Times BOOKreviews - 4-1/2 Star Top Pick
This book is great !
I enjoyed everything about this story. Definitely not a “ cookie cutter” book. I rarely read a book more than once but I know I will come back to this at some point in the near future.
Reminded me of Doomsday Book, but Jack the Ripper instead of the Bubonic Plague as the antagonist. Well developed and likeable characters and well conceived plot.
