The streets of London’s East End are awash with blood. A murderer stalks the night, picking off vulnerable women and leaving them brutally butchered. But this is not the 19th Century; this is not Jack the Ripper – this is a copycat killer and once again the police remain clueless… For fast-tracked, media savvy DI Chandler it’s his first big murder case; for front-line, hard-bitten DS Miles, he’s now saddled with a boss who would rather talk about Emotional Intelligence than gut feeling. Neither of them have a clue, until renowned ‘Ripperologist’ Edward Buchan draws their attention to the similarities between the Jack the Ripper killings in 1888 and the modern-day murder. The race is on to succeed where police officers failed over 100 years before – to catch the copycat killer before he strikes again.
