From the Publisher:
When an upper-class girl goes missing in the East End, rough-hewn private enquiry agent Cyrus Baker and his assistant, Thomas Llewelyn, link her disappearance to the murders of five girls in Bethnal Green before receiving taunting letters from a man with possible ties to a hedonistic gang of debauched aristocrats involved with possible satanic rituals. Original. 40,000 first printing.When Barker and Llewelyn are hired to find a girl from the upper classes who has gone missing in the East End, they assume her kidnapping is the work of white slavers. But when they discover five girls have been murdered in Bethnal Green, taunting letters begin to arrive in Craig's Court from a killer calling himself Mr. Miacca.|Barker fears that Miacca might be part of the Hellfire Club, a group of powerful, hedonistic aristocrats performing Satanic rituals.
