Publisher's Summary

Summer, 2059. A man wearing a cape and a top hat approaches a prostitute on a dark, New York City street. Minutes later, the woman is dead. Left at the scene is a letter addressed to Lieutenant Eve Dallas, inviting her to play his game and unveil his identity. He signs it, "Jack." Now Dallas is in pursuit of a murderer who knows as much about the history of serial killers as she does. He has studied the most notorious and the most vicious slayings in modern times. But he also wants to make his own mark. And he has chosen his victim: Eve Dallas. And all Eve knows is that he plans to mimic the most infamous murderers of all - starting with Jack the Ripper.

And last, but not least, Susan Erickson seems back on her game by reverting back to the original voices that made the characters so beloved in the audio series.

Great even the 2nd time around

I am slowly buying the series with audible.

There is soo many volumes in the series and I tend to forget the details, so it is a lot of fun to reread and enjoy them all over again.

I forgot how much Peabody was nervous about taking her detective test, the many and interesting red herrings(all of them looking suspicious)and the side story of Roake and Eve's mother. Also, i love the home cookout scene where Eve meets Mira's daughter for the first time and has a heart to heart. It was really touching.
