The Beijing Ripper is at large, using the gruesome methods of his Victorian inspiration in a city as booming and squalid now as London was then. But when Dr Margaret Campbell performs an autopsy on one of his victims, the results send the investigative team reeling. The police, the media and a horrified public are baying for blood, and Campbell's partner, Detective Li Yan, is the detective responsible for delivering the killer to them. However, the Ripper knows exactly who's after him, and when he writes Li a personal letter, the case - and Li's life with Margaret - begin to drastically unravel. Only one thing is certain: to save himself and his family, Li must find out who the Ripper really is.

Peter May

Peter May was born and raised in Scotland. He was an award-winning journalist at the age of twenty-one and a published novelist at twenty-six. When his first book was adapted as a major drama series for the BCC, he quit journalism and during the high-octane fifteen years that followed, became one of Scotland's most successful television dramatists.

He created three prime-time drama series, presided over two of the highest-rated serials in his homeland as script editor and producer, and worked on more than 1,000 episodes of ratings-topping drama before deciding to leave television to return to his first love, writing novels.

He has won several literature awards in France, received the USA's Barry Award for The Blackhouse, the first in his internationally bestselling Lewis Trilogy; and in 2014 was awarded the ITV Specsavers Crime Thriller Book Club Best Read of the Year award for Entry Island. Peter now lives in South-West France with his wife, writer Janice Hally.
