Can an American teen leave her i-Phone and Starbucks behind, travel back to 1888 London, and unmask the man who got away with murder again and again?
Jack the Ripper eviscerated his victims and sent body parts to Scotland Yard to taunt the inspectors. Katie has read about the Ripper. Visiting a Jack the Ripper exhibit, she learns the names of his victims and where they were killed. She's watched her fair share of CSI; surely she knows enough to stop this maniac.
And, luckily, handsome nineteenth-century Toby agrees to help her. Can gutsy Katie and Toby do what Scotland Yard's finest could not? If she intervenes and changes history, how will that affect her life and those around her? And when it's time to go back to her own century, can Katie really leave Toby—the one who believed in her, helped her, and really understood her?
With 60 illustrations by Chris Gall. (In color on color devices)
