This book was creepy (I slept with the lights on the first night I was reading it) but historical creepy. The story of Jack the Ripper features into it, which I didn't know very much about going into the story and it was really well-researched for sure. I think this would have been a great one-off, but apparently it's going to be a series. This read as a great one-off until the very last sentence which was trying to be cliff hanger-y. I think it's a good cliff hanger, but too weak for me to keep going with the rest of this series.
