There have been many books written about Jack the Ripper, both fictional and ones based on fact. This book takes on the story with an unusual twist. It involves a man who stumbles onto a portal, a gateway to the past. How does he react to such a situation, and how involved will he let himself get? Would that involvement change history and distort the timeline? Such was Peter Haines’ dilemma. He was a retired Army Sergeant; his life was uneventful until the day he fell into a world he could never have imagined. A world that became an obsession. He found himself in a grim era of English history, a sordid past shrouded in murder and terrible atrocities; it was a world he could not dismiss. The year was 1888 in London’s Victorian past. It was the time and place where the Ripper carried out his horrendous deeds. It led Peter into a series of circumstances beyond his control, circumstances impossible to imagine. It turned into a nightmare.
