In order to celebrate Halloween, I will be giving away two gently used mass-market paper back copies of Jack the Ripper thrillers. These Jack the Ripper thrillers are Portrait of a Killer: Jack the Ripper Case Closed by Patricia Cornwell and The Whitechapel Conspiracy by Anne Perry. In a matter of full disclosure, I used white-out to clear my name off of Portrait of a Killer on the first page. One winner will win both books. More about the novels:
Portrait of a Killer: Jack the Ripper Case Closed by Patricia Cornwell (description from front page summary in book): Between August and November 1888, at least six women were murdered in London's Whitechapel area. The gruesome nature of their deaths caused panic and fear in the East End for months, and gave rise to the sobriquet that was to become shorthand for a serial killer - Jack the Ripper.
For more than a hundred years the murders have remained among the world's greatest unsolved crimes, and a wealth of theories have been posited which have pointed the finger at royalty, a barber, a doctor, a woman, and an artist. Using her formidable range of forensic and technicall skills, bestselling author Patricia Cornwell has applied the rigorous discipline of twenty-first-century police investigation to the extant material, and here presents the hard evidence that the perpetrator was . . . The answer lies within.
The Whitechapel Conspiracy by Anne Perry (from the back of the book): In 1892, the grisly murders of Whitechapel prostitutes by a killer dubbed Jack the Ripper remain a terrifying enigma. And in a packed Old Bailey courtroom, Superintendent Thomass Pitt's testimony cuases distinguised soldier John Adinett to be sentenced to be hang for the inexplicable murder of a friend. Instead of being praised for his key testimony, Pitt is removed from his station command and transferred to Whitechapel, one of East End's most dangerous slums. There he most work undercover investigating alleged anarchist plots. Among his few allies are his clever wife, Charlotte, and intrepid Grace, the maid who can travel unmarked in Whitechapel. But none of them anticipate the horrors to be revealed. . .
