It is 1892 and the grisly killings of Whitechapel prostitutes by a man dubbed Jack the Ripper remain a frightening enigma.

Interesting and well researched
Characterisation of Pitt
The treatment of the Jewish community in London
An excellent read.
This isn't my favourite book in the Thomas Pitt series, but it's a good story and it was very well read by Terence Hardiman. I like Anne Perry books but unfortunately many of the Anne Perry books on Audible are read by Deidra Whelan and she reads so badly that they are impossible to listen to. I had read this book before but it was worth buying it again because Terence Hardiman read it so well.
