Back cover copy

As Lieutenant Eve Dallas stood over what had once been a woman, she wondered when she would see worse than this.

Jack the Ripper, the Boston Strangler, Ted Bundy. The worst murderers in history and a new madman's inspiration. In the lost hours of the night a man in a top hat and swirling cloak leaves horror in his wake and a note to Eve Dallas, signed simply: Jack.

More murders follow and Eve quickly realises the killer's deadly game of imitation. But facing this calm and menacing presence, with a trail running through London, Paris and LA, Eve struggles to keep her focus.

At a time when legend collides with brutal reality, Eve needs all her wits about her . . .
