Official Synopsis Edit
"1851. Victorian England enters its golden age of prosperity and worldwide power. Charlotte Brontë has revealed herself as the best selling author of Jane Eyre and is the toast of literary London. Yet she yearns for her true love John Slade, the dashing secret agent, whom she hasn't seen or heard from in three years. While researching topics for her next novel, she tours Bedlam, the notorious London insane asylum, and glimpses a wild, raving madman. It's Slade--or so it seems, even though Charlotte thought he was in Russia on assignment. When she goes back for a closer look, she learns that the madman has escaped and two nurses have been savagely murdered. Was the madman really Slade? Is he also the killer? Charlotte begins a search for Slade. It takes her from his superior at the Foreign Office, who says he's a traitor, to the slum of Whitechapel, where a murderer akin to Jack the Ripper stalks the streets, from Ireland to France, and from Bedlam and Newgate Prison to the Great Exhibition in London. She clashes with Queen Victoria and Wilhelm Stieber, the famous Prussian spy. Her quest leads her to the reunion of her dreams with Slade, and a stunning discovery: a secret that could determine the outcome of a war between England and Russia, its political rival--or destroy the world."
