About this product
- DescriptionIn the fall of 1888, Jack the Ripper slaughtered five prostitutes in London's seamy Whitechapel District. He did t 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 t only for his crimes, but because, despite one of the biggest dragnets in London history, he was never caught. I, Ripperis a vivid reimagining of Jack's personal story entwined with that of an Irish journalist who covered the case, knew the principals, charted the investigation, and at last, stymied, went off in a bold new direction. These two men stalk each other through a city twisted in fear of the madman's blade, a cat-and-mouse game that brings to life the sounds and smells of the fleshpot tenderloin of Whitechapel and all the lurid acts that fuelled the Ripper headlines. Dripping with intrigue, atmosphere, and diabolical twists, this is a magnificent psychological thriller from perennial New York Timesbestseller Stephen Hunter, who the San Francisco Examinercalls one of the best storytellers of his generation.
