Overview

When Julia Winstanely, daughter of a prominent west end family starts to work with W.T. Stead, muck raking editor of the Pall Mall Gazette, she finds herself and her family involved with some of the worst and most powerful people in Victorian London, people who kidnap and sell young girls to brothels on the continent. As Julia and her suffragette sister, Serafina, battle for legal means to find missing girls, the crimes of Jack the Ripper begin. Julia's handsome cousin, Miles, tries, with Julia's help to stalk the monster through the back streets of Whitechapel. With the aid of a clairvoyant photographer they discover, to their horror, that the answer to the Ripper murders and the trade in young girls lies in their own family's past. The true facts of the trade in children and the involvement of public officials will amaze readers who thought Victorian London was a tame place.
