An alternate history based on the idea that Jack the Ripper never existed, Louisiana Blood by Mike Donald has a detective chasing the true story.
Chandler Travis is a detective for the New Scotland Yard who follows a long family tradition to learn the true identity of Jack the Ripper. He learns that a century-old coach has been found in a swamp in Louisiana – and it contains five female corpses and a letter from one of the prime suspects in the Jack the Ripper murders. Travis flies to Louisiana, where he partners with Sheriff Duke Lanoix. The two must uncover the truth before the local governor shuts down their investigation.
I love the complexity just in the setup, and the idea that a conspiracy behind Jack the Ripper stretches across the ocean. Reviewers found the narrative thrilling and compelling, and I really enjoyed the preview chapters. Louisiana Blood can be pre-ordered at Inkshares now!
