April, 1890: London wakes to the shocking news of a mass prison escape. The Scotland Yard Murder Squad now face a desperate race against time: If they don't re-capture the four convicted murderers before night settles, they'll vanish into the dark alleys of the London's criminal underworld forever. And in the midst of this mayhem and fear, the city's worst nightmare is realised: Jack the Ripper haunts the streets of London once more.

As an Alex Grecian fan.......
It started out so well, I loved the books leading up to this one, and initially I was not disappointed..... but the further I got the less I liked. It is all so gory, which I can deal with but Jack simply takes over from the general well loved characters and left me cold.
I think the concept was very good, if only the author had not become obsessed with Jack, much lost when the true people we came here for are overshadowed
This was good - no fault. Good clear diction, lots of feeling, emotive and easy to follow
I know it has a follow up book and it most certainly will not be in my wish list
I was so excited to start this book.but its telling that I didnt finish reading it -
Enter the realm of Saucy Jack
