It is a time of secrets and evil: the time of Jack the Ripper and his reign of terror on Victorian England. But not _every_ trail of blood led to that diabolical figure. Captain Edward Soames is quickly learning that 19th century London is home to more than one brutal murderer. It will take all of the captain's cunning and skill to find and defeat his quarry. But Soames can't shake the feeling that he's met the killer before: a mythological man-eating demon that looks surprisingly like a Predator.
