London: the early 1840s. The birth of the young Queen Victoria's first child is taken as an auspicious sign for all. But on a cold March night, a spree of dark crimes in shadowy workhouses shocks the city.

When Inspector Owen Endersby, of the recently formed London Detective Police, learns that the string of identical murders and abductions have all taken place under similar circumstances, he fears a monster is prowling the city. How long until the murderer strikes again? Is this the work of a diabolical killer, or a madman with confused motives? Facts are scarce. Endersby and his sergeant, Thomas Caldwell, must start an investigation based on the fitful testimonies of terrified girls and one peculiar clue: a piece of curtain lace found in the throats of the victims.
In Victorian London, a new kind of criminal is terrorizing the city's most vulnerable denizens. With the London Detective Police still in its infancy, Inspector Owen Endersby pursues a killer so depraved that the inspector must turn away from his own moral compass, risking his career and more to catch a monster.

Baker & Taylor
With a new kind of criminal terrorizing early Victorian London, Inspector Owen Endersby, and his sergeant, Thomas Caldwell, investigate hoping to stop the killer before he strikes again.
