CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, DEVELOPMENT:
A historical Victorian Era mystery romance novel with mystery, murder of the wealthy, the White Chapel murders, and a variety of characters, make an entertaining intriguing read. With everyone’s avid interest in Jack The Ripper, Catacalos, vividly and skillfully included these “Ripper like murders” as part of her story-line; the Torso Killer and Leather Apron. Set in London of 1888, the setting was perfect for inclusion.
