Summary (From the publisher):

As the fog descends, madness claims the night, prowling along back alleys and deserted city streets, seeking the next unsuspecting victim in a devastating reign of terror, claiming life after life with a sharp blade and a surgeon's skill, then vanishing without trace into the darkness that spawned it.

He is Red Jack, Jack the Ripper, and though many have claimed to know his true identity--from surgeon to lord to member of the royal family--Jack was never caught. Yet his grizzly deeds of a hundred years past have spawned nightmare visions throughout the entire century since those gruesome days when Death stalked the streets of London. And in this hundredth anniversary year, the ghost of horror walks again in this chilling collection of tales, including a short novel by Ellery Queen, about that most diabolical destroyer--

RED JACK.
