This is book number 1 in the Lacey Flint Novels series.
Detective Constable Lacey Flint is doing something very routine, going to her car, when her life changes. A woman is by the vehicle in the last moments of her life. She is the first murder victim Lacey has encountered but she will not be the last. Someone is copying the century old murders of Jack the Ripper with a difference; his victims are married women not ladies of the night. The killer has Lacey in his plans, sending her blood drenched notes and making her superiors wonder about her connection to the killings. Lacey has secrets to keep; she lived rough in the past. The tension is high as Lacey tries to stop the killer while the bodies pile up.— Deon Stonehouse
Late one night after interviewing a witness, Lacey Flint, a young detective constable, stumbles onto a woman brutally stabbed just moments before. Within twenty-four hours, a reporter receives an anonymous letter pointing out alarming similarities between the murder and Jack the Ripper's first murder—a letter that calls out Lacey by name. If it's real, and they have a killer bent on re-creating London's bloody past, history shows they have just five days until the next attempt.
No one believes the connections are anything more than a sadistic killer's game, not even Lacey, whom the killer seems to be taunting specifically. But as the case unfolds, the details start reminding Lacey of a part of her own past she'd rather keep hidden. And the only way to do that is to catch the killer herself.
Fast paced and riveting, Sharon Bolton's modern gothic novel Now You See Me is nothing less than a masterpiece of suspense fiction.
