I am soon to read and review..."The Ripper" by Carmelo Anaya

Post-in-progress. I am waiting on a review copy of this book.

Genre: Mystery & Detective/Police Procedural

One hundred twenty-five years to the day after Jack the Ripper committed his first gruesome murder, a young woman is killed in a picturesque Spanish town. As if the eerie timing isn’t enough to unnerve Commissioner Carrillo, the murderer has mimicked the Ripper’s grisly method almost exactly.
Soon more women are murdered and their bodies horrifically mutilated. Tips and accusations fly wildly, sending the commissioner and his fellow officers chasing after suspects who might be innocent. Adding to the confusion, the killer is creating his own trail, carving mysterious signs on the bodies of his victims and texting the commissioner puzzling messages.
When the murderer reveals who his fifth victim will be, Commissioner Carrillo’s blood runs cold—he now has a personal stake in solving the atrocious mystery. Who is this villainous fiend posing as Jack the Ripper? Can he be caught before he commits his final murder?

I wonder if the women will appear to their killer in dreams, as they do in mine. Diana Carolina Mieles was a cleaning lady and carer. She bathed the elderly, picked rubbish off the ground, worked hard. She was deserving. Cristiana Stoicescu, Naima Medari, Sandra Okeke, Rosario Minguez -- none of them knew anything in this life but exploitation. Their flesh was eaten.
I know my life would be meaningless if I didn't stand up for every Cristiana Stoicescu,every Diana Carolina Mieles, Naima Medari, Sandra Okeke, Rita Oehlen and Rosaria Minguez.
The law is like a dam. Sometimes it saves you; sometimes it drowns you. It needs vents so justice can get through. We can't see it all. We can't know it all. If we knew about every horror happening around us, every minute of every day, we wouldn't be able to stand it. It's not a limitation; it's relief.
