London, 1902. A string of murders committed by a killer dubbed 'The Deptford Strangler' has the police mystified. The victims seem to have nothing in common, and the crimes appear random and motiveless. Meanwhile, retired Inspector Brough and his nephew, Nicholas Calvin, researching a book on the history of murder,unearth a series of killings committed in Rogano, Italy in 1454 identical in pattern to the present-day crimes. What possible connection could there be between these horrific events separated by almost 450 years? Brough and Calvin are determined to find out—but they are not prepared for the terrible truth they will uncover.

An intriguing romp through gaslit London with a supernatural side trip to medieval Italy. Atmospheric and engaging, even for the less than enthusiastic reader of re-created historical mysteries, like myself. The author's narrative flair keeps the open-minded reader engaged from start to finish.

I originally read this book back in 1982 and only recently got hold of a copy again. So I went in with expectations weighed by nostalgia, which is always a dangerous thing when re-visiting a cherished book after so many years. To my pleasant surprise, the novel knocked me off my feet again! It is a wonderful mystery, involving a retired Scotland Yard detective attempting to solve murders committed by the Deptford Strangler in London, ca. 1902. Adding to the mystery, these murders mirror a string of unsolved murders that took place in Renaissance-era Rogano, a small village in northern Italy. There are twists and turns aplenty and a couple of genuine bombshells. Knight's writing is taut and efficient. He is a natural storyteller who masterfully concocts his potent cocktail with elements of mystery, supernatural, religion, and historical verisimilitude. Supremely recommended!
