Welcome to Whitechapel. The year is 1888.
Discovery is the ultimate risk...
for the shape-shifter
for the time traveler
for the madman who hunts them.
Victorian London harbors dark secrets. Shapeshifters weave skillful illusions, cloaking their identities while a killer stalks the unwary in WhiteChapel.
For Time Rover, Jacynda Lassiter, the mission is simple -- find an overdue 'tourist' and return him to 2057 before he alters history. For Dr. Alastair Montrose, the danger is discovery -- for himself and his kind. To prevail, they must outwit a madman whose legacy will endure for centuries.
