The murder of two prostitutes on the streets of Whitechapel are added to the casefile of Detective Inspector Augustine Haunt. A gentle soul of high intelligence, Haunt must decipher the clues written in chalk along with the markings carved into the bodies of the slain women. Clues, which he regards, like his Asperger’s Syndrome, as just another obstacle amongst a multitude. With Detective Pelling at his side he discovers a pattern to the murders that bring Ripper history into the present day.
Noah Hackwell is an intellectual but persecuted teenager. He knows poverty in inner city London. Bullying in an inner city school and the reason why you don’t ride your cycle into the path of a speeding taxi.
As the clues unfold the impossible is no longer discounted. Wentworth Street and North Tenter Street will be added to Buck’s Row. Hanbury Street. Berner Street. Mitre Square and Millar’s Court.
The path fate has laid for Detective Inspector Haunt is a path one, without his steadfastness, would walk with trepidation. However, fate follows those who need it most.
