Excerpt

> poi che ’l superbo Ilïón fu combusto.

Ma tu perché ritorni a tanta noia?
perché non sali il dilettoso monte
ch’è principio e cagion di tutta gioia?».

«Or se’ tu quel Virgilio e quella fonte
che spandi di parlar sì largo fiume?»,

che m’ha fatto cercar lo tuo volume.

non lascia altrui passar per la sua via,
ma tanto lo ’mpedisce che l’uccide;

Growing up, Madison Kent has always been fascinated by the mere fact that Jack the Ripper, one of the most notorious murders ever known, escaped justice. She would dream of her own alternative version of the facts and decided to write her own story, in which the suspects are totally different people. As our author of the day, Kent chats about this book of hers, Stalking Jack, how much research she did on London and Whitechapel and how her characters were conceived.
