(From the publisher):
Who was Jack the Ripper? Was it the Duke of Clarence? A doctor with a perverse specialty in anatomy? A policeman? Ever since the infamous Ripper terrorized the prostitutes of Victorian London, the murderer's identity has remained a mystery. In his chilling, suspenseful new novel, master of the macabre Robert Bloch proposes a brand-new solutiono.
Featuring cameo appearances by such Victorian notables as Arthur Conan Doyle, George Bernard Shaw, and the Elephant Man, The Night of the Ripper is a harrowing tale of terror in which a young American doctor, Mark Robinson, and a London detective on the trail of the Ripper find themselves caught in a hall of mirrors in which suspicion moves quickly, unpredictably from person to person.
