The Ripper Affair, Paperback
3.5 out of 5 (1 rating)


Sorcery. Treason. Madness. And, of course, murder most foul ...A shattering accident places Archibald Clare, mentath in the service of Britannia, in the care of Emma Bannon, sorceress Prime.

Clare needs a measure of calm to repair his faculties of Logic and Reason.

Without them, he is not his best. At all. Unfortunately, calm and rest will not be found. There is a killer hiding in the sorcerous steam-hells of Londinium, murdering poor women of a certain reputation.

A handful of frails murdered on cold autumn nights would make no difference ...but the killings echo in the highest circles, and threaten to bring the Empire down in smoking ruins. The game is afoot ...

Review by

In a world subtly different to ours, where magic works and London is Londinium and Victoria is Victrix there is a killer whose murders seems to be undermining the power of England. Bannon and Clare have to fight it, stay alive and deal with the consequences of previous actions.I liked it and I found it interesting.
