When Paul meets Redman he doesn't realise that this meeting is going to change his life forever and also his understanding of what happened to his brother when he was young. What Paul does could change the world

It's got some Jack the Ripper echoes and there are moments that really engaged me, but there were also moments that just seemed to be there to pile in the horror for the sake of it and not for plot. I do want to read the next in the series to see what's happened but it's not an immediate need. ( )
