THE NAME OF THE STAR
Sixteen-year-old American girl Rory has just arrived at boarding school in London when a Jack the Ripper copycat-killer begins terrorising the city. All the hallmarks of his infamous murders are frighteningly present, but there are few clues to the killer's identity. "Rippermania" grabs hold of modern-day London, and the police are stumped with few leads and no witnesses. Except one.
In an unknown city with few friends to turn to, Rory makes a chilling discovery!
Could the copycat murderer really be Jack the Ripper back from the grave?
