Comments & Further Information

First UK paperback (larger sized B format 130 x 198mm) with a single number 1 as the number sequence indicating a first printing of this edition. Unread. Comes complete with the publisher’s publicity handout. “Winifred Rudge, a writer struggling to get beyond the runaway success of her mass-market astrology book, travels to London to jump-start her new novel about a woman who is being haunted by the ghost of Jack the Ripper. Upon her arrival, she finds that her step-cousin John Comestor has disappeared, and a ghostly presence has invaded his home. Is the spirit Winnie’s great-great-grandfather who, family legend claims, was Charles Dickens’s childhood inspiration for Ebeneezer Scrooge? Or could it be the ghostly remains of Jack the Ripper?” IN STOCK FOR IMMEDIATE DESPATCH
