A gas-lamp mystery featuring Jack the Ripper, Arthur Conan Doyle, Harry Houdini, Cthulhu, Mina Crandon, Mary Jane Kelly, the Cottingley Fairies, and a cast of thousands!
"I knew, as everyone knows, that the easiest way to attract a crowd is to let it be known that at a given time and a given place someone is going to attempt something that in the event of failure will mean sudden death," - Harry Houdini.
An exhilarating romp through Victorian London and 1920s Boston, as fact and fantasy are merged, moulded together, and then torn apart again all for your entertainment and delectation! By combining genuine newspaper and police reports of the crimes of Jack the Ripper with fictional drama, Paul Voodini takes us on a journey from Whitechapel to Bethlem mental hospital, and from Cottingley in Yorkshire to Boston in Massachusetts, along the way meeting such larger-than-life characters as Arthur Conan Doyle and Harry Houdini.
