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

Maureen Johnson

Maureen Johnson was recently crowned the 2012 Queen of Teen in the UK — but, as it turns out, she is American. She was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, during a massive snowstorm. After a little dalliance with astronomy (she had a glow in the dark star chart) and archaeology (she had a little shovel), Maureen declared her intention to become a writer at the age of eight or nine or so.

She is the New York Times bestselling author of ten YA novels (including Suite Scarlett, Scarlett Fever, 13 Little Blue Envelopes, The Name of the Star and The Madness Underneath). She has also done many collaborative works, such as Let It Snow (with John Green and Lauren Myracle), and The Bane Chronicles (with Cassandra Clare and Sarah Rees Brennan). She writes frequently on the subject of Young Adult literature for many publications, and is well-known for her online presence on Twitter. Maureen lives in New York, and online on Twitter. She’s not giving that crown back.
