By David Peace

Con una brillante y sórdida exposición de los hechos, Peace nos traslada adelante y atrás en el tiempo, entre 1983 y los acontecimientos narrados en 1974, 1977 y 1980, y nos ofrece las respuestas a los interrogantes de estas novelas en una trama envuelta en un clima de desasosiego y soledad. Monólogos interiores, escritura entrecortada y diálogos sombríos reproducen los crímenes del Destripador de Yorkshire en un paisaje atormentado y sin futuro.
