When one hears the term ´´Victorian,´´ many images come to mind. For some, the term conjures up visions of lace and gloves and delicate fans. Others think of tight corsets and even tighter morals. Others, swayed perhaps by one too many British costume dramas, envision gentle elegance and long lost beauty. Naturally, few people think of multiple dead bodies cast about in the streets or dark bedrooms, most mutilated to a shocking degree, and yet, those tragic images played a significant role not only in late Victorian London but ever since. In 1888 and 1889, a killer stalked the dark backstreets of the city through the notoriously overcrowded and crime-ridden Whitechapel district, murdering young women and then cutting their bodies up like a butcher. The Jack the Ripper case continues to fascinate historians and amateur sleuths so much that people have dubbed themselves Ripperologists, and since nobody knows for sure who the killer was, every aspect of the crimes is up for discussion, down to who the actual victims of the Ripper were and whether there was actually more than one Ripper. In addition to considering so many suspects, the police were only certain that five of the victims (the ´´canonical five´´) were killed by Jack the Ripper, but there were at least 11 documented murders over the course of several years, and today those are called the Whitechapel murders. 1.

There have been a countless number of serial killers throughout history, and certainly more prolific ones, but the timing, circumstances, and unsolved nature of the case continue to make Jack the Ripper the most famous serial killer in history. The murders came at a time when media coverage could be both more acute and more widespread, and it allowed the public a closer look into how police agencies operated at the time, exposing both their strengths and shortcomings. 1.

In 1888 and 1889, a killer stalked the dark backstreets of the city through the notoriously overcrowded and crime-ridden Whitechapel district, murdering young women and then cutting their bodies up like a butcher. As is so often the case with a serial killer, the first murder was largely ignored. She was a ´´fallen woman´´, a prostitute barely worthy of police notice. But then there was another victim, killed and butchered while plying her illicit trade. The police took notice and, by the time the third body was found, also mutilated and filleted like a fish, the public took notice too. An outcry began to swell from the good people of the city who, though willing to overlook a prostitute dying in the streets of alcohol poisoning or a venereal disease, were disconcerted by idea of a mass murderer. Then came two victims found in one day, and a feeling that, if the killer remained on the loose, there was nothing to stop him from seeking victims anywhere, even in the nice suburban neighborhoods of the rising middle-class. As more victims turned up, terror spread throughout the city, and it even became news across the globe, but then the murders seem to have ended just as quickly as they began. There have been a countless number of serial killers throughout history, and certainly more prolific ones, but the timing, circumstances, and unsolved nature of the case continue to make Jack the Ripper the most fam 1.

Jack Lawson grew up poor and can´t forget it. He´s a huge success in the business world, but it won´t be enough until the image of ´´poor little Jack´´ is completely wiped away. When Jack runs into his old friend, Noah Mercier, he decides that Noah´s sister, an up-and-coming movie star, would be the perfect evidence of glamorous success. If Jack can win Hayley, it will be clear to everyone, including himself, that he has truly arrived. The problem with Jack´s grand plan is that he´s more attracted to Noah. Jack´s never worried about the gender of his conquests, but Noah just isn´t flashy enough for Jack´s scheme to set the world on fire... unless Jack realizes he has practically no control over deciding who he wants - and even less choice in who he needs. 1.

I love you, I love you, I love you. A million times over. Most of the universe doesn’t know about the Darkers: a group of people that work outside of time to better the future. Acquisitions Editor Alice Goetz had no idea they existed until they enlisted her for a ´´simple” mission to improve the future: get Paul Osmund to sign his book to her publisher. After years of reliving the same few hours over and over, Alice realizes simplicity is never simple. She gets the contract, but the mission isn’t quite over, and staying on longer is dangerous. Paul is falling in love with her every time, and despite fighting to stay aloof, she’s falling too. Alice has known since she first started working for the Darkers that she and Paul couldn’t be together. If Alice doesn’t accept that fact, she may change the future in ways no one intended, and the deeper she goes, the more chance there is that Paul could die on every timeline in which he exists.Cover art by Jack Voraces; Images adapted from Freepik 1.
