Description

Panic grips the city!
There is a killer loose in New York City, and Carver Young is the only one who sees the startling connection between the recent string of murders and the most famous serial killer in history: Jack the Ripper. Time is winding down until the killer claims another victim, but Carver soon sees that, to The Ripper, this is all a game that he may be destined to lose.

“A rollicking story full of cannot-put-it-down twists an turns.” —VOYA
“A well-crafted romp through yesteryear’s New York.” —Kirkus Reviews




About the Author

A lifetime fan of comic books, science fiction, and horror, Stefan Petrucha developed a love for all sorts of literary work in high school and college, eventually learning that the very best fiction always brings you back to reality, so really, there’s no way out. At times he has been a tech writer, and educational writer, a public relations writer and an editor for trade journals, but fiction has always been his passion. He has written several graphic novels for the X-Files, Tales from the Crypt and Nancy Drew series and has also published numerous young-adult novels in the science fiction and horror genres, including Paranormal State, a companion book to the hit A&E television show of the same name. Stefan lives in western Massachusetts with his wife and daughters. Visit Stefan Petrucha online at www.petrucha.com
