Summary (From the publisher):

It was a weird theory. The criminologist and the psychiatrist had proven that the Ripper, who had once preyed on London’s women, was roaming Chicago… waiting to make another “sacrificial murder” as his stars moved into the kill pattern. The theory led them to a wild and shocking party. When the moment came, they turned out the lights and got ready…
