More than 100 years after Jack the Ripper's murders in Whitechapel, Jack was in Venice, California, plying his trade in the back alleys. J.R. Damien, an expert on the infamous murders, dreams of the new murders as they happen. He also warns artist Lizzie Stride that she may be the next victim. Lizzie's masks have been left at the scene of each murder. She also shares a name with one of the original Ripper victims.
I usually like most fiction that deals with Jack the Ripper, but this book wasn't the best. Damien and Lizzie run from one place to another, trying to hide from the serial killer. They never seem to have a plan, just run, run, run. The reincarnation aspect of the book was the only interesting portion. My rating: 3 Stars.
Lizzie Stride is a mask maker in Venice California. She is appalled to learn that a modern day Jack the Ripper is using her masks in his mutilating and killing of women. J.R. Damien, Pulitzer prize winning reporter, has made it his mission in life to stop this serial killer. Together the two discover past lives and race against time to stop the murderer before it is too late.
