Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

London in 1900 is sprawling and chaotic, perfect for a man like Denton, an American with a violent past seeking anonymity as an outsider. But his notoriety as the author of several dark novels sometimes brings unwanted visitors to his door. When a terrified man shows up one night, claiming to be pursued by the long-gone Jack the Ripper, Denton dismisses him as one more victim of Londons lunacy. But then the mutilated body of a teenaged prostitute is found in Londons East End. . . .

Disappointed by the lack of police concern, Denton determines to pursue the murderer, even after its clear that hes become the next target. As he begins to peel away the layers of the case, Denton finds himself following nothing but his instincts through the maze of London. Along the way he finds an ally in a woman with a past as haunted, and a spirit as independent, as his own.

Kenneth Cameron has brought turn-of-the-century London vividly to life in this intelligent and compelling crime novel. The Frightened Man delves far deeper than the circumstances of a murder to investigate the unseen—the secrets harbored in Londons immeasurable streets and in the dark side of human nature.
