Jack the Ripper was the first tabloid star of the twentieth century and remains the most notorious and enigmatic serial killer in history. After five heinous, ritualistic murders are committed during a ten-week span in London in the Fall of 1888, Scotland Yard Inspector Frederick Abberline's new assignment is to investigate the brutal "Jack the Ripper" murders in the Whitechapel district of London. Along with a string of mutilated prostitutes, he uncovers a conspiracy involving the government, sex, and blackmail that could lead straight to the Royal Palace.
