The Ripper's Apprentice

The Ripper's Apprentice

In the slum alleys of Lambeth in 1891 a sinister silk-hatted figure lurks in the shadows – but trade is there for the taking and a girl must make a living. Now, one after another, the girls who work the Waterloo Road wake in the morning to feel the slow agony of the most vicious of poisons . . . victims of the man called Fred.

The police have only a string of ‘catch me if you can’ letters to taunt them, whilea whole mailing list of Victorian worthies find demands for money with menaces in their mail.

Inspector Swain investigates . . .
