Overview
The supernatural thriller that reveals the identity of Jack the Ripper! — BOOK #2 IN THE DR. WILLIAM SCARLET MYSTERIES. London, August - November 1888. In London's East End, prostitutes are being murdered by an unspeakable killer. 'Jack the Ripper' has written a taunting letter to the authorities. But the Whitechapel murderer remains as invisible as the night air—his stalking as silent as the screams the murdered women were never able to utter. Scotland Yard and England's government are powerless. But police surgeon and psychic Dr. William Scarlet sees a mysterious pattern emerging. Then another series of murders begins. This time, men are the victims: all killed in ways that defy description. And no one but Scarlet and medium Django Pierce-Jones suspects that the two sets of murders are connected to each other . . . and to dark rites long since abandoned. Or maybe not.

In London's East End, prostitutes are being murdered by an unspeakable killer. The women are all found after midnight in backyards, quiet streets, and dark city squares, with their throats slit and some of their organs removed. 'Jack the Ripper' has written a taunting letter to the authorities. But the Whitechapel murderer remains as invisible as the night air—his stalking as silent as the screams the murdered women were never able to utter. Scotland Yard and England's government are powerless. But police surgeon and psychic Dr. William Scarlet sees a mysterious pattern emerging. Can the origin of the killing spree be much more ancient than anyone realizes? And what is the secret organization the clues keep pointing to? Then another series of murders begins. This time, men are the victims: all killed in ways that defy description. And no one but Scarlet and medium Django Pierce-Jones suspects that the two sets of murders are connected to each other . . . and to dark rites long since abandoned. Or maybe not.
