Synopsis

While taking an evening stroll through one of London's most impoverished districts, author Bram Stoker spies a maddeningly familiar figure hurrying through the shadows. Little does he know that, only a few steps away, a vicious killer has claimed his first victim, a local prostitute. The crime spree of the century has begun—and the hapless writer is the prime suspect. Now, to clear his name, Stoker must enlist the aid of illustrious friends—including Walt Whitman, the wildly popular novelist Sir Thomas Henry Hall Caine, and Lady Jane Wilde, mother of the most notorious literary notable of the day—to hunt down the fiend who is taunting and terrorizing London and calling himself Jack the Ripper.

Zimbio

It got a bit mystical in places, but somehow it worked, perhaps because it is suggested throughout the novel that many of Stoker’s experiences through this period informed his work on “Dracula.” Even my difficulty getting into the book results from one of the novel’s strengths: it has a very per...
