Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0425212831, Mass Market Paperback)In 1942, London faced a reign of terror unknown since Jack the Ripper.
The nightly air raids had darkened London's neon dazzle but not its urge to live it up. With death a daily possibility, drinks and sex were everywhere. But one man had other urges. Over a five-day period, "The Blackout Ripper" murdered with a lightning-fast ferocity that stunned and baffled investigators. He left few clues in his bloody wake-until a slip-up revealed his true identity, and shocked a city that thought it had seen it all.

Seven days later, the man dubbed as the 'Blackout Ripper' had struck six times, his crimes becoming more brutal at each turn. The killer left few clues in his bloody wake, until a slip up revealed his true identity, and shocked a city that thought it had seen it all.
