In 1888 Jack Ripper’s activities London, England are making headlines in New York City. In the second book of the Gilded Age Mysteries, Heiress Prudence MacKenzie is now a partner in a new investigative agency. Geoffrey Hunter, her partner is an attorney and ex-Pinkerton detective. One of Prudence’s maids whose family has worked for the MacKenzie family is found murder in a grizzly death that copies the Ripper’s work. In the effort to prevent headlines in the newspapers, the police arrest her fiancee and he disappears in the tombs. The case becomes a priority for the firm. More similar murders occur and The police continue to hide The evidence of The deaths. The enter the dark underbelly of New York to investigate. The story will twist throughout this dark area in order to find an answer to the murders and prove the men arrested for the murders are innocent. The ending will surprise you. There are sex and violence that may not be suitable for everyone. I recommend this as a good view of New York City in that time.
