The Touchstone series of historical adventures continues with this stand-alone opener to the second season, a Victorian suspense thriller dripping with mystery and horror.
July, 1888. Two months before Jack the Ripper’s Whitechapel murders begin, a killer stalks the gaslamp lit streets of Victorian Birmingham, the heart of England’s industrial revolution.
Are the clues to his horrific crimes in a series of macabre paintings by Daniel Pearce, an artist suffering amnesia and desperately trying to uncover his lost past before his impending marriage? Or could Daniel’s past be in the future? And might the blank canvas of his life be hiding a murderous secret — that he must save his fiancée, Arabella... from himself?
Can Daniel Pearce stop the Ripper before he starts, or are his actions creating the world’s first serial killer?
