Product description

From the Publisher

On a damp Saturday morning in November 1888, the horribly mutilated remains of a young woman are found in a smalll room in Miller's Court, a squalid backwater running off of Dorset Street - oft times referred to as 'the worst street in London'.
The body is identified as that of twenty-five year old Mary Jane Kelly, the fifth and final victim of Jack the Ripper. But who can be really sure it is her? And if it is, then what strange course of events led her to this fatal meeting?
The Seduction of Mary Kelly is a novel - not about the investigation into the serial killings; there are no policemen doggedly tracking down the killer in this book, but rather it is the story of a young woman's journey: from the poverty of a childhood spent in a small Welsh mining village, through a short-lived marriage and its awful aftermath; to the mean streets of Cardiff where violence is never far away, then into the highest circles of London society, before the fall from grace that brings her to the very brink of destitution - and possibly to her death at the hands of the Whitechapel murderer.
Mary Kelly's story is an epic one, depicting Victorian society at its best and worst, and weaving threads of deceit and betrayal, love, friendship, determination and courage that bring those two worlds inexorably together.

From the Author

This is not a Jack the Ripper book in the accepted sense - that has been done many times before. Naturally, the Ripper murders feature in the plot, and yes we do discover who the Ripper is at the end (well, you wouldn't want to read 592 pages and still not know, would you?) But this is no horror/murder novel, but rather the story one remarkable woman's journey from her childhood in Wales - to the mean streets of Victorian Whitechapel - via a series of events, some funny, others tragic, that lead her to that fateful meeting and an unexpected conclusion.
This is an adult novel. There are some sex scenes, some violence and occasional bouts of swearing, but it is also a story of love, hope and inspiring determination.
I hope you enjoy reading it as much I enjoyed writing it.
