The day Louisiana teenager Rory Deveaux arrives in London marks a memorable occasion. For Rory, it's the start of a new life at a London boarding school. But for many, this will be remembered as the day a series of brutal murders broke out across the city - gruesome crimes mimicking the horrific work of Jack the Ripper in the autumn of 1888. Soon Rippermania takes hold of modern-day London, and the police are left with few leads and no witnesses. Except one. Rory spotted the man police believe to be the prime suspect. But she is the only one who saw him. Even her roommate, who was with her at the time, didn't notice the mysterious man. So why can only Rory see him? And more urgently, what is he planning to do about her?

In this edge-of-your-seat thriller, full of suspense, humor, and romance, Rory will learn the truth about the secret ghost police of London and discover her own shocking abilities.

    " It was a tad slow in the beginning, but once it picked up, it was hard to put down. The end will most *definitely* leave you thinking, "Why straight to the poof? Where's the 'neeee' at? It's supposed to go 'neeee poof.' Not just 'poof.'" Being an obsessor of the Victorian Era, I knew of Jack the Ripper and I must say I've never feared him until now. Some mini chapters felt rather unnecessary and deviated from the point, but aside from that, a great read. "

    " SO GOOD. I tried and failed to read The Name of the Star a year ago, but picked it up again this afternoon and could not stop reading. Perhaps my reading taste has changed or I was just getting to the good bits when I quit reading, but whatever it was, I really freaking loved this book. (And the sequel is out REALLY soon.) "

    " Finally, something new... something different. I'm glad my friend recommended this book to me because I have long since wanted to read about Jack The Ripper! Strange enough however, all I can think about right now is Ghost busters, lol. "

    " This was a very interesting book. I loved the detailing of each character and how smooth the transition from chapter to chapter was. It was an easy read and no matter what happened in each chapter (exciting or tragic), i could not put the book down! "
