From the Inside Flap
Dr Thomas Bond, Police Surgeon, thinks he has finally recovered from the terrible events of years before. He no longer has nightmares about Jack the Ripper - or the other monster, an enemy even more malign who hid in Jack's shadow and haunted the streets of London at the end of the 1880s. He had made his peace with his part in bringing calm back to the East End. His fame as a profiler of criminals is increasing, his practice is steady, and Dr Bond is beginning to dream of marriage, and children. Life is good. But when a woman's body is found brutally beaten to death in a railway carriage and a letter written years before is discovered by the police, the past he has fought so hard to put behind him begins to taint the present, and he can no longer fight his new suspicions. Just when he thought life had returned to normal, Dr Bond is about to discover that some things will not remain buried: once again his uncanny enemy is loose on the streets of London... and this time Dr Bond is alone.
