People of Abandoned Character - Clare Whitfield
"To be honest, the first couple of chapters didn't grab me - but, oh boy, am I glad I carried on reading! A take on the Jack the Ripper story, the life of women from the slums of London, I found myself getting up early to get some chapters in before work!"
What would you do if you thought your husband was Jack the Ripper? A dark historical crime novel.
What if you thought your husband was Jack the Ripper?
London, 1888. Susannah rushes into marriage to a young and wealthy surgeon. After a passionate honeymoon, she returns home with her new husband wrapped around her little finger. But then everything changes. His behaviour becomes increasingly volatile and violent. He stays out all night, returning home bloodied and full of secrets.
Lonely and frustrated, Susannah starts following the gruesome reports of a spate of murders in Whitechapel. But as the killings continue, her mind takes her down the darkest path imaginable. Every time he stays out late, another victim is found dead. Is it coincidence? Or is her husband the man the papers call Jack the Ripper?
