A stylish, highly intelligent and darkly compelling Edwardian crime novel featuring an engagingly original author hero.American novelist Denton is an uncomfortable outsider in class-ridden turn-of-the-century England.

But he is about to be plunged into the dark heart of a society where privilege and propriety hide unspeakable horrors.

When a stranger turns up at his door declaring he has just seen Jack the Ripper, Denton dismisses his lurid ravings as the delusions of a madman.

But then a prostitute's horribly mutilated body is discovered that night - and Denton suspects the two events are connected.

While the police investigation grinds towards a seemingly preordained conclusion, Denton becomes obsessed with finding out who the victim really was and who killed her - a search that leads him by degrees into the darkest, most violent underbelly of London...
