Paperback. A work of fiction. August 1888. Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police Charles Warren has in his possession, a precious artefact, dating back to the very earliest days of human history. Sent to Jerusalem to survey and explore the ancient religious sites there, he found the solid gold object while excavating a hidden chamber under the Temple Mount, and smuggled it back to England. When a mysterious stranger pays a visit, Warren is terrified to discover that the man is on the trail of the ancient relic. He denies all knowledge of the object, little realising just how far the stranger is prepared to go to destroy him and recover the artefact. The first murder takes place in Whitechapel - a prostitute, Martha Tabram, is found stabbed to death. And then the 'Ripper' strikes again. As the body count rises, and the Metropolitan Police scour the streets of Whitechapel in a vain attempt to apprehend the killer, Warren faces a terrible choice. He alone holds the key to the Ripper's identity, but is he willing to sacrifice his career and reputation to bring a murderer to justice? 486pp. p/back. F. with no creasing to covers.
