Synopsis

'Astonishing ... I'd be amazed if it isn't dominating the shortlists come next year's awards season' M.W. CRAVEN. Marry in haste... Murder at leisure?



London, 1888: Susannah Chapman rushes into marriage to a young and wealthy surgeon. After a passionate honeymoon, she returns home with her new husband wrapped around her little finger. Or so she thinks.



But within the cold confines of their Chelsea townhouse, Thomas's behaviour begins to unravel. He stays out all night, returning bloodied and full of secrets. The gentle caresses Susannah enjoyed on her wedding night are now just a honeyed memory. She thought she'd married a puppy, but is he, in fact, a wolf?



When the first woman is murdered in Whitechapel, Susannah's interest is piqued. But as she follows the the ongoing hunt for the murderer, she sees a terrifying pattern emerging. Every time Thomas disappears, another victim is found dead. Is it coincidence? Or is her husband the man they call Jack the Ripper?
