                    Mark Vogel's latest novel:

History professor Henry Willows is in love—in love with Catherine Eddowes, the fourth victim of Jack the Ripper. Although over a century distant, Henry’s obsession knows no bounds. With the aid of an ingenious physicist, Henry achieves his raison d'être: a means to travel back in time, stop the world’s most infamous serial killer, and save the woman he loves. But the fabric of time isn’t easy to change . . . and the Ripper has plans of his own.

    Captain Butch Morgan, the chief of police, must uncover the truth about Crestwood Lake. With each gruesome discovery, he is thrust increasingly deeper into the macabre.  Morgan must confront an ancient evil, a fateful showdown that could destroy his life, the woman he loves, and the tortured town of Crestwood Lake.
