The Autumn Murders by S J Ridgway
Autumn 1888, the time of the Whitechapel Murders when five unfortunate women are murdered in a similar manner, and in some cases, their bodies mutilated. It is the most unsolved murder mystery with the serial killer responsible being given the name of Jack the Ripper.
The file on the murders remain dormant for over a hundred years. That is, until Detective Superintendent Cadema Sharma sends DC Marriott to the police archives for a file on the Belton case she is reinvestigating. During his search, Marriott discovers an old wooden trunk containing a blooded dress and some notebooks which suggest they are linked to the Whitechapel murders.
With the Belton case finally solved, Cadema reopens the investigation on the Whitechapel murders. She and her team, using current investigation skills, assisted by up to date forensic technology, attempt to piece together the evidence.
There are tensions within the team which Cadema must manage along with her own insecurities, as she tries to discover where in the world lie the remains of Jack the Ripper.
