Nora Kenny makes the occasional journey on the Staten Island ferry to work in Prudence's Fifth Avenue house, just as her mother once served Prudence's mother. As little girls, they played freely together, before retreating into their respective social classes. Still, they remain fond of each other. But when Nora slips away to Saint Anselm's one chilly Saturday to confess her sins and never returns, Prudence is alarmed. And when Nora's body is discovered in a local park, Prudence is devastated.
Nora will not be the only young woman to fall victim, but the police are uncertain what they are dealing with. Has the Ripper sailed across the Atlantic to find a new hunting ground? Is some disturbed soul copying his crimes? A former Pinkerton agent, Geoffrey intends to step in where the New York Metropolitan Police seem to be failing, and Prudence is just as determined to protect the poor, vulnerable females being targeted. But a killer with a disordered mind and an incomprehensible motive may prove too elusive for even this experienced pair to outwit.

Book 1 was much better, but still decent
Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
Probably not. I have read probably ten mystery books now that use a copy-cat Ripper as the basis of the story...seems lazy to me.
What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)
I didn't guess the real murderer, but we weren't introduced to him until late in the story. The actual ending was just okay for me.
Any additional comments?
If more stories are written in this series, I will wait and see how it is reviewed before I download. Based on the first book, it's clear this author can write a good story with strong characters.
