Saul David – The Prince and the Whitechapel Murders
London 1888: George ‘Zulu’ Hart is the mixed-race illegitimate son of a Dublin actress and – he suspects – the Duke of Cambridge, commander-in-chief of the British Army. George has fought with distinction in Africa and Afghanistan, but he’s a gambler, short of money and in no position to turn down the job of ‘minder’ to Prince Albert Victor, second in line to the throne. George is to keep this charming young cavalry officer out of trouble: no easy task, given that the Prince is a known target for Irish nationalists and has a secret sexual orientation which leaves him open to blackmail and scandal.
When a series of horrible murders begins in Whitechapel, George is drawn into an investigation which forces him to confront the unthinkable ...
Saul David’s thrilling novel is based on detailed research, and is a fascinating new twist on the Jack the Ripper story.
