Summary

When Fiona and James Brett move into their fashionable London home, they discover the attic room harbours a dark and deadly secret. James locks himself away inside, ostensibly to take up oil painting, but he soon becomes moody, even violent. Local prostitutes are being attacked, and then the Bretts’ Polish cleaner is murdered. Another murder soon follows and this time it is even more close to home. James’s former lover is found mutilated, mirroring the Whitechapel killings of over a century ago. Could James be responsible, or is the evil of Jack the Ripper’s crimes casting its shadow over him?

return of the ripper?

This is a really suspenseful audiobook in the shadows of Jack the Ripper. I thought the storyline was really gripping & I really like this narrator's voice. Makes you wonder if an evil spirit can continue to have a malevolent influence on others over time. worth seeking this author out, as I enjoyed this book very much. more please.

Good listen.

I really enjoyed this book. I have just found this author, but, so far great.

It is not the first story I have heard using 'Jack the Ripper' as the main bad character haunting the home owners. F G Cotton has done this also but, in a very different manner.

I have now listened to two books of Pat Herbert and they are well worth a listen.
Stories based in England and a joy to hear.
