A girl named Rory starts attending a school in London. The day she returns is the day after the first "New Ripper's" murder. Rory is the only person to witness this man near her school, the site of another murder.

This book is extremely well written. I love reading and whenever this book wasn't in my hands. I was dying to go home and read more.

Rating: 5 Hard to imagine a better book.

Louisiana native Rory is tossed into a modern day rippermania in London. The book is fun, catchy , and kept me pulled in until the end. The ending was good, but it was almost an obvious cliff hanger. It was kind of odd, but still good.

Rating: 4 Better than most
