Before his incubare he witnesses the savage murder of lubricious lady bird Martha Tabram when he comes face to face with her killer. But as his mind becomes muddled b’twixt fact and fiction he considers the gruesome murder of Polly Anne Nichols. The mind games soon begin with his loyal protector and friend Dr. Treves when he stumbles across her ripped up cadaver inside the old greengrocers shop - a location known to be frequented by Joseph. He equates his patient’s complicity in her death. So along with an important mission asked of him to find Pearly Poll; a key witness to that earlier slaying the doctor uses this scenario to play out his own evil agenda to reinvent a middle England medieval society which remains close to his heart. But to achieve his aims he must first build a ring of steel around his patient as a game of cat and mouse is played out with the Press Association. This leads to the doctor’s own psychosis and lust for blood as he takes it upon himself to set the rules for his insane agenda. And as each murder is committed, Inspector Abberline fails to discover the connection, while Dr. Treves’s epiphany comes to fruition during the ultimate initiation ceremony. 72 pages - pdf format
