A surgeon lost, a man haunted...a name feared.
London surgeon Doctor Paul Barnet's career is shattered by a botched surgery and brazen attack nearly taking his life. Because of his downfall from society, loss of skills, and the love of his fiancée, Dr. Barnet seeks vengeance through an alter ego - Jack the Ripper.
He looked down, frustrated and at his wits end. He continued, “Was it not enough to live day by day with the agony of a useless limb, a ruined future, reputation, and broken heart? How much can a man endure after being the unwilling messenger of death? Why has my fall into the abyss of oblivion continued for so long? I have moved to Spitalfields, Doctor. I will leave my address with your secretary…in case.”
He closed the door quietly behind him.
Doctor Barrows Winfield turned from the window ashamed to let his honor student see the tear on his cheek.
“Godspeed, Paul,” he whispered to the closed door.
