Selby Parker’s novel is a shocking and imaginative tale of murder, mayhem, and out-of-body fantasies, filled with plot twists and provocative issues that tear at the fabric of three families who become involved with a New York psychiatrist. A rich Jewish widow recovering from a failed marriage, a Vietnam veteran who suffers night terrors, and a successful Jewish businessman who learns that his mother was a mistress to a Cuban mobster all make for interesting clients, whilst endangering the psychiatrist’s life. The soldier’s dreams reveal him to be the reincarnation of Prince Albert Victor, the grandson of Queen Victoria. His lurid tale under hypnosis reveals the culpable parties in the unsolved Jack the Ripper murders in London’s White Chapel. Rich with descriptive details of London, San Francisco, and Sicily, the novel offers gritty realism, powerful characters, and historical fantasy all woven together in a common thread.
