Product description

A Jack the Ripper copycat killer is terrorising London. But what if it really is him, bloodthirsty and back from the grave?

Hailing from New Orleans, sixteen-year-old Rory is starting at an East London boarding school when the first body is found. All the hallmarks of the Ripper’s infamous murders are frighteningly present, but there are few clues to the killer’s identity. As the slaughter continues and hysteria grips the city, the police are stumped, with no leads or witnesses. Except one. In an unknown city without friends to turn to, Rory makes a chilling discovery: she can see the dead…

“A gorgeously written, chilling, atmospheric thriller. The streets of London have never been so sinister or so romantic.” Cassandra Clare, author of The Mortal Instruments series

“An unputdownable thrill ride that will leave you gasping, laughing, and dreaming of London.” Ally Carter, author of the Gallagher Girls books
