I am originally from Lancaster, Pennsylvania, USA but have been living in the UK for ten years. I have been interested in true crime for most of my life. My first introduction to Jack The Ripper was by my father when I was about 7or 8 years old. He gave me a book on Jack and I was hooked. I also love the East End of London not just because of the Ripper but for its history. Il ive near London now so when I go there, I always take time for the East End. I am also a photographer so try to record my visits on film or should I say digitally nowadays. I do a bit of writing and have been thinking about researching and writing about the slaughterhouses in the East End in the 19th Century. You can see some of my photographs on Flickr under the name longliz1888. I also have a keen interest in genealogy.

The sleepy town of Newbury, Connecticut, is shocked when a little girl is found brutally murdered. The town s top detective, perplexed by a complete lack of leads, calls in FBI agent Leia Bines, an expert in cases involving children.
Meanwhile, Dr. Peter Gram, a psychiatrist at Newbury s hospital, searches desperately for the cause of seven-year-old Naya Hastings devastating nightmares. Afraid that she might hurt herself in the midst of a torturous episode, Naya s parents have turned to the bright young doctor as their only hope.
The situations confronting Leia and Peter converge when Naya begins drawing chilling images of murder after being bombarded by the disturbing images in her dreams. Amazingly, her sketches are the only clues to the crime that has panicked Newbury residents. Against her better judgment, Leia explores the clues in Naya s crude drawings, only to set off an alarming chain of events.
