It is 1888, and London is a city in the grip of one of the most gruesome and mysterious crime sprees in history. Women are being strangled and murdered by a madman who can t be found, a serial killer who strikes with ruthless precision. Under extreme pressure from the Royal family, the head of Scotland Yard (Michael York) assigns its top man (Patrick Bergin) to the grisly case. Inspector James Hanson s only witness is a beautiful girl (Gabrielle Anwar), a former prostitute who the authorities consider expendable, and with whom Hanson soon falls in love. Stories of the investigation quickly reach the top of England s royalty, but who would think the prime suspect is among them? In a society where the privileged get away with murder, Hanson knows he must stop this relentless killer - and protect the woman he loves.
