Ripper

David L. Golemon

In 1887, the British Empire contracted brilliant American professor Lawrence Ambrose to create a mutant gene—and turn an ordinary man into an aggressive fighting machine. But all too quickly, Ambrose was found to be behind a streak of vicious murders, and in a cover-up of massive proportions, Queen Victoria gave an order to have the project, and Ambrose, terminated. Thus the legend of Jack the Ripper was born…

The killings stopped as suddenly as they had begun, though not because Ambrose was caught. Instead, he escaped and returned to America, where he and his work faded into history…until 2012, when a raid against a Mexican drug lord uncovers a small cache of antiquated notebooks that appear to have belonged to the mad genius. Enter Col. Jack Collins and the Event Group, who are desperate to put a stop to one of history's most notorious enemies. Or die trying…

Reviews

Praise for Ripper

“A tale worthy of the giants of the genre like Clive Cussler, James Rollins, and Matthew Reilly, Legend is a definite must-read for action and adventure fans. Don't miss it.” —Megalith.com on Legend

“The author…draws the reader in with an intriguing prologue…satisfying adventure.” —Publishers Weekly on Legend

“Golemon can write action sequences with the best of them, and he lands a solid uppercut with this book. The depth of science fiction…is surprising and ingenious.” —SFSignal.com on Legend

“Golemon combines his typical action-adventure fare with more thriller elements this time, and he focuses more on the personal stakes of his characters. …Golemon knows how to make readers turn the pages, and Primeval will only further enhance his reputation.” —Booklist

“Fans of Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea will enjoy Golemon's recasting of the Jules Verne novel.” —Publishers Weekly on Leviathan

“Golemon's third novel in the Event Group series proves to be his best yet….a mix of the James Rollins action-heavy adventure, the military gadgetry of Tom Clancy, the pacing of the television series 24, and the conspiracy theories devoured by fans of the radio show Coast to Coast AM.” —Booklist on Ancients
