Hardback. SIGNED. A novel set in the East End of London. 'In 1888 Percy Miller was ten years old, growing up in the slums of Whitechapel, in the East End of London. It was also the year that Jack the Ripper was wreaking havoc in the area. Percy got caught up in the shocking events and ended up traumatised by the murders in a time before 'trauma' had been invented. He lived but could never tell the tale. It was no surprise to anyone that he ended up settling into the life of a career criminal. It was another fifty years before the East End saw violence on a scale to eclipse the Whitechapel Murders of 1888 and once again Percy was right in the thick of it. The Blitz of London was a truly terrifying thing to live through. Percy, against all the odds, was now a grandfather of one. Billy Miller, Percy's grandson was ten years old when the Blitz began in September 1940. To Billy the air raids were times of excitement and adventure. Without adult supervision Billy and his friends were free to roam as the bombs rained down. Their criminal instincts were not easy to shake off until Billy turned one daring rescue into a game.' With Map + Jack the Ripper - Victims, Key to Map (1888). 189pp. 8vo. h/back. New. With tipped-in label SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR.
