New York, 1891. A prostitute is found brutally murdered – her body slashed and some of her organs removed. Immediately fear starts to spread. The victim bears the same hallmarks as Jack the Ripper’s recent killing spree in England. Finley Jameson, one of the original English Ripper pathologists, is put on the case and teamed up with Joseph Argenti, one of the new ‚untouchable‘ detectives, hand-picked by a New York Mayor eager to fight corruption. With the body count rising and Jameson and Argenti being openly taunted by letters claiming to be written by the killer it seems the ‘Ripper’ rumours could be true.
Historischer Thriller. “One of deep and dark menace which really takes you into the dark underbelly of 1890s New York with its gangs, child pirates and prostitutes plying a dangerous trade in its murky east side docks areas, made all the more dangerous by a savage new murderer.” (Leser) (40 Rezensionen / 3,8 Sterne), 397 Seiten noch günstig?
