July 13, 2009 - PRLog -- Prepare to be thrilled and chilled again as Brian L Porter's sequel to 'A Study in Red' brings the soul of Jack the Ripper back to life and into the present day as his latest novel takes up the story ten years after the events that chronicled the terrible consequences of reading the journal of the infamous Whitechapel Murderer of 1888.

Legacy of the Ripper:
Jack Thomas Reid, nephew of Robert Cavendish who first appeared in A Study in Red - The Secret Journal of Jack the Ripper languishes in the secure Ravenswood Psychiatric Hospital, sentenced to confinement 'at Her Majesty's Pleasure' for a series of apparent 'Jack the Ripper' copycat killings in the picturesque English coastal resort of Brighton. Jack's defence at his trial, that he is a descendant of Jack the Ripper and that the crimes were conducted by an unknown 'mystery man' and that Jack was drugged and made to appear as the killer was regarded as so preposterous and unbelievable that his sentence was never in doubt. When one of the policemen who conducted the original investigation into the murders begins to doubt the truth of the case against Reid, Sergeant Carl Wright and Ripperologist Alice Nickels begin an investigation into his story. What they find is told through the voice of Doctor Ruth Truman, Jack's psychiatrist at Ravenswood, and through a series of events that take place as far afield as the beautiful island of Malta and in Warsaw, Poland. Slowly but surely and with the help of Wright's boss Inspector Mike Holland, the link between the events that shocked and terrorised Whitechapel over a century ago, and their link with the case of Jack Thomas Reid and the 'Legacy of Jack the Ripper' is revealed.

A Study in Red - The Secret Journal of Jack the Ripper was the winner of The Preditors & Editors 'Best Thriller Novel of 2008 Award' and is available from Double Dragon Publishing, Amazon and all good retailers.

Legacy of the Ripper is now available in paperback from http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1554046904 in the USA and from http://www.amazon.co.uk/Legacy-Ripper-Brian-L-Porter/dp/1... in the UK, and in its e-book edition from  http://www.double-dragon-ebooks.com/single.php?ISBN=1-554...
