Publisher's Summary

The year is 1888 and Jack the Ripper terrorises the East End of London; all the victims are found in Whitechapel – but Scotland Yard has to look into another suspicious death, that of Edmund Gurney in Brighton. Foremost amongst the Yard’s top men is young Inspector Sholto Lestrade.

It is to his lot that a number of unsolved cases fall – cases that include the murder of a former Whitechapel prostitute, and that of Gurney. Leaving no stone unturned, Lestrade follows the trail to a public school, Rhadegund Hall, where it is his intention to question the Reverend Algernon Spooner. What he finds is murder. As the Whitechapel murders increase in number, so do those at Rhadegund. What is the connection?
