An impossible killer stalks the streets of London.
Jack the Ripper faded into history over a century ago, his identity lost to the ages. Until a work crew restoring a Mayfair home makes a shocking find: a secret basement room walled up since Victorian times. The Whitechapel murderer's lair. And inside, a corpse that has waited in silent darkness for over a 100 years. But it won't stay that way....
Within hours of the room's discovery, the body goes missing, and the murders begin anew.
With a violent killer on the loose and the body count rising, John Decker, still new to CUSP, is sent to England, along with seasoned operative Colum O'Shea. Their mission: to stop a ruthless monster from obtaining the one thing that will allow him to escape forever.
As the city huddles in fear and the terror mounts, Decker finds himself in a race against time to catch a hellish fiend smarter than any he has ever faced. Because, if he doesn't, the next death might hit a little too close to home.
This is book five in the John Decker series, but it can be listened to as a stand-alone novel.
If you are a fan of James Rollins, Douglas Preston, Lincoln Child, and Steve Alten, you will love the John Decker series.

A fair offering
I picked up a free audible code from the author via Facebook in exchange for a review. I hadn't heard any of the John Decker series, but there was no issue working out who the bad guys were. The story itself was enjoyable and well paced with plenty going on to keep the listener engaged. I did like the slightly supernatural element which was an interesting twist. The narrator was okay, but a couple of mispronounced words should have been picked up by editing.

Narrator is terrible
The storyay very well be fine but I couldn't tolerate the narrator for more than a couple of minutes. I will NEVER buy another book with him as the narrator.

John Decker vs Jack the Ripper
This was a highly entertaining entry in the John Decker series. Jack, (or Abraham as it turns out) is a very effective opponent for Decker. We are never given a clear explanation of what he is, but that makes it all the more effective. Part serial killer, part vampire, part... something else. Jack is intelligent and resourceful. The backdrop of modern London is great as well. This may be, in my opinion, the best book in the series yet.
To be fair, this is not "Great Literature", and if that is what you are expecting, you will likely be disappointed. However, if you want an entertaining story with supernatural overtones and a hero that is willing to stand up to any threat, then you will have a fun time here. The story reads like a cross between episodes of The X-Files and Kolchack, The Night Stalker.
No sex, no profanity, a pretty good dose of violence (it's Jack the Ripper after all). Recommended.
