Summary (From the publisher):

The Back Bay has been filled in. Palm readers and prostitutes ply their trade in South Cove. And the watchword of the day is "NINA:" No Irish Need Apply. Boston in 1892 is a town of Victorian pride, prejudice, and private passions. Now, on Beacon Hill, a crusading woman and her genteel brother, Addington, are investigating two grisly murders of young women, the work, say police, of "a deranged person." For Caroline Ames, solving the mystery is a matter of helping an old friend, the woman who runs a home for wayward women known as Bertram's Bower. But for Addington, the investigation will lead to the revelations of a sexually alluring, scandal-struck actress... and to the secrets of some of Boston's most "respectable" men.

As Addington confronts the hypocrisy of Brahmin society, he moves closer to a shocking suspicion about the killer's identity. And as fear grips the city, the evidence points in one frightening direction: that London's Jack the Ripper is alive, well, and killing again...
