*Starred Review* Cameron, who also writes military thrillers with his son under the name Gordon Kent, launches an impressive historical-mystery series. It's 1900, and London is a bustling, crowded metropolis—the perfect place for an American named Denton to lose himself. Seeking to escape his tragic past, Denton has moved to London after writing a series of dark, atmospheric novels that have been best-sellers in America. One evening, he receives a mysterious visitor. The man is stuttering with terror, swearing he's just seen the Ripper. Denton discounts the man's hysterical claims, but when he learns that a teenage prostitute has been brutally murdered not far away, he wonders if there's a connection. When Denton talks to the police, they give him short shrift and seem to want to wrap up the murder with minimum fuss. This only makes Denton more determined to seek the truth. Along the way, he encounters London's seedy underbelly and meets the brusque but oddly charismatic Janet Striker. Together, the pair begins to unravel a shocking and horrifying story. A gripping page-turner, Cameron's novel combines a devilishly clever plot, enigmatic characters, a foreboding atmosphere, and a shocking finale. A top pick for all crime collections.

London in 1900 is rapidly transforming into a modern city but still retains a Victorian fog-ridden atmosphere. When a terrifed man claims Jack the Ripper is chasing him, successful expatriate American author Denton dismisses him until a prostitute is brutally murdered. Denton's American take on British society as well as his writer's eye for detail below the radar make this an unusually good foray into a popular time period. Sure to appeal to both fans of historicals and Jack the Ripper tales. Cameron also writes military thrillers under the name Gordon Kent. [Library marketing.]

Jack the Ripper may be back to his old tricks in 1900 London in Cameron's chilling tale of prostitution, evisceration and voyeurism. General Denton, an expatriate U.S. Civil War veteran and former frontier sheriff turned novelist, receives a visit one night from a frightened stranger, R. Mulcahy, who claims to have seen Jack the Ripper on the street. Denton and his sidekick, Sergeant Atkins, dismiss Mulcahy as a mad man, but soon afterward they spot a newspaper headline ("Unspeakable Mutilation of a Young Victim") about the murder of a street girl, Stella Minter. Driven by his instincts as an author and by demons from his tortured past, Denton begins a relentless search for clues to the killer. Through the offices of pettifogging police officials, seedy settlement houses and garish pubs, Denton and social worker Janet Striker trace Stella's pitiful life until the stunning and violent climax. Cameron with his son writes military thrillers under the pseudonym Gordon Kent (The Spoils of War). (May)
