Publisher's Summary

England 1888
After forfeiting his wife to the company of other men, Sir James Addison, a notable English poet and gentleman, begins descending into a demented melancholy that prompts him to move from his elaborate estate in Oxfordshire to the London's seedy borough of Soho. Soon after his arrival in Soho, Sir James begins yielding to the intoxicating effects of laudanum and to the whims of his madness, just as his memory begins lapsing and Jack the Ripper begins his campaign of terror.
Plagued by the persistent presence of an inordinately large raven, and hellish nightmares of his forthcoming death, Sir James and his friend, Cornelius Ingram, take leave of London and travel to North Yorkshire and to a time-trodden and once regal residence known as 'Windham House' where the raven follows and the spectre of death is waiting.
