The 1921 boast of Police Chief Thomas Byrnes that Jack the Ripper would be captured within thirty six hours in New York City sets off a series of murders and catches a young reporter in the midst of them. Based on the premise that Jack the Ripper actually crossed the ocean, as chronicled in the newspapers of the day, Jack's Holiday delves into the nature of evil and the responsibility of the press while holding a mirror up to our time.
