It’s 1892, Sydney. Ex-detective Frank Brady has a head full of demons, an opium habit and a determination to find out who murdered his wife in South Africa four years ago. He enlists the help of a female journalist to flush out the killer from the gentleman’s club at the centre of a web of colonial corruption. As the final showdown unfolds, the identity of the killer seems irrefutable. But has Brady made a mistake and put the woman he has come to care about in danger? Inspired by the true story of Melbourne murderer, Frederick Deeming, considered in some circles to be Jack the Ripper, the three books in the Ripper series make for a thrilling tale of murder and intrigue that will keep the reader guessing until the very end. Keep an eye out for The Chase (the Ripper’s Net: Episode 2) in December 2014 and The Trap (the Ripper’s Net: Episode 3) in January 2015! Praise for Judy Johnson ʻMemoryʼs snapshots and machinations, its random catalogues of our pasts, lie beautifully revealed.ʼ Anthony Lynch, Australian Book Review ʻJudy Johnson is a terrific storyteller.ʼ Dorothy Porter ʻJohnson possesses an unerring gift for story telling.ʼ Sarah Holland-Batt, the Sydney Morning Herald
