Victoria Thomas is one of the FBI's finest criminal profilers, a career born of the tragic, unsolved murder of her younger sister. She's also a closet "Sherlockian," involved in a group that follows the famous English detective. This hobby leader her to London, to a symposium on Sherlock Holmes, where she finds unexpected passion...and a chilling murder mystery involving a modern-day Jack the Ripper.

He's murdering women and leaving clever, diabolical messages for Victoria to follow. He's teasing her, taunting her, daring her to find him. For he, too, is following his calling--answering the terrible demons of his bloodline, proving he is every bit as elusive as his infamous ancestor.

In the chilling Bloodline, Jill Jones weaves a spellbinding tale of icy suspense, haunting romance, and lost history, that spans from the time of Jack the Ripper in 1888, to this very day.

From the Publisher:

"A fascinating blend of historic murders and contemporary intrigue. You won't want to put it down!" -LISA GARDNER, New York Times

From Publishers Weekly:

Victorian serial killer Jack the Ripper was never caughtAthe murders simply stoppedAand theories as to his identity continue to abound. A century later, FBI profiler Victoria Thomas, on a London holiday, attends a Ripper seminar, where she hears handsome Scotland Yard Inspector Jonathan Blake deliver a provocative lecture that sets off a string of copycat killings in London and the U.S. Although a strong suspect surfaces early, Jones (who specializes in historical mysteries, such as Emily's Secret and The Scottish Rose) throws out compelling red herrings to confuse the reader. Victoria, who became a profiler after her sister was brutally murdered, suddenly becomes the quarry as the chase accelerates, and her sister's unsolved case becomes integral to the current killing spree. Complicating matters further is the hot romance that springs up between Victoria and Jonathan. In this entertaining tale, Jones offers a plausible, inspired take on the mystery of the elusive Ripper, complete with (fictionalized) diaries, as well as a look into modern FBI/Scotland Yard procedures and the sinister power of secret forces within governments. A caveat: the grisly killings aren't for weak stomachs.
