In the fall of 1888, Jack the Ripper slaughtered five prostitutes in London's seamy Whitechapel District. He did not just kill -- he ripped with a butcher's glee -- and then, after the particularly gruesome slaying of Mary Jane Kelly, he disappeared. For 127 years, Jack has haunted the dark corners of our imagination, the paradigm of the psychotic killer. We remember him not only for his crimes, but because, despite one of the biggest dragnets in London history, he was never caught.

I kept expecting the "nailer" to show up and blow Jack to hell.

Too grotesqueness for my liking. The description of Jack slicing his victims was plenty detailed. I thought it would be based on the detectives work and their thoughts. Guess I should have taken the title literally.

This is a new interesting take on Jack the Ripper.

Between the chilling narrative and often times grotesque description this thriller will keep you engrossed through twists and turns till the last page.

Great read and well written.

I find most of Hunter's books to fall into the very good to excellent range. This novel, while displaying the author's excellent writing style, was a major disappointment. Could not have been more bored. Do not waste your time

Not that he didn't do a good job ... but I still prefer his Swagger novels.
