Think the Jack the Ripper saga is too old and tired for a new twist? Think again. What if he were from NYC and fled across the Atlantic to London, with a determined detective in hot pursuit?
This is the basis for DARK STREETS OF WHITECHAPEL.
In 1888 in New York City, the search for a killer of prostitutes comes to an end with the capture of Doctor Jack Lewiston, a respected surgeon and madman. But before he can go to trial, Jack escapes from custody and flees the country to London, England.
Brought out of retirement to track him down is ex-NYC homicide detective-criminologist, Henry Marboro. In charge of the original investigation in the “Ripper Murders,” Henry lost his objectivity when his younger sister was one of Jack’s victims. Ultimately his obsession to find the killer cost him his career, his wife, and some time in a hospital for alcohol treatment.
Now on a renewed mission, Henry must find Jack Lewiston and bring him back to America—dead or alive—hopefully before more prostitutes become the victims of the multiple sexual killer.
In the process, Henry develops an attraction for a mysterious and beautiful American nurse, Loraine Broderick, who lives in London. Unfortunately, Jack also has his sights set on her as a target of his madness—in addition to ladies of the night streetwalking in Whitechapel in London’s East End.
