CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Winifred Rudge, a writer struggling to get beyond the runaway success of her
mass-market astrology book, travels to London to jump-start her new novel about
a woman who is being haunted by the ghost of Jack the Ripper. Upon her arrival,
she finds that her step-cousin and old friend John Comestor has disappeared,
and a ghostly presence seems to have taken over his home. Is the spirit
Winnie's great-great-grandfather, who, family legend claims, was Charles
Dickens's childhood inspiration for Ebenezer Scrooge? Could it be the ghostly
remains of Jack the Ripper? Or a phantasm derived from a more arcane and
insidious origin? Winnie begins to investigate and finds herself the unwilling
audience for a drama of specters and shadessome from her family's peculiar
history and some from her own unvanquished past.
