A Gentleman in the Dark

He stalked the streets of Whitechapel with intent to kill. The police never caught the man...but was it a man they were looking for? When Nell's sister is killed by the notorious Ripper, she discovers more than the police could hope to find.


1. Footsteps

Footsteps rebounded off the leaking walls as a tall silhouette moved between patches of dirty lamplight, soon swallowed up by the night. Behind him, a sprawled shape whimpered.

An oily puddle oozed from underneath the mass of hair and started to congeal around the pale, outstretched arm. A finger curled slowly and then froze into a hook.

A new pair of feet came to stand over the body. Its shadow threw itself over the corpse. Silver flashed as the blades moved downwards.
