The victims are women too, but their dismembered bodies, wrapped in rags and tied up with string, are pulled out of the Thames – and the heads are missing. The murderer likes to keep them.
I spotted this book on the book blog of Ellie (Curiosity Killed the Bookworm). Her blog is a big problem for my shelves. She has all this great books that go directly on my to read shelf as if there are not enough on that shelf already. The cover caught my attention obviously. Combined with murder in 1888 in London and I knew I had to put this book on my to read shelf. Now I just have to get my hands on a copy at some point.
