About the Book

A heinous and blood-thirsted killer is on the loose in New York City and targeting a certain demographic of men. At end, he will claim the lives of seven men, six of whose very killings directly mimic those of Jack the Ripper of Whitechapel, London fame. The “types” of slayings, the manner of death, and even the very “initials” of each victim's name all closely mirror those found slain at the hands of Red Jack in 1888. So, who is behind the slashings, and why are they even occurring? The city’s best Major Crimes Unit is already on the case, along with a Medical Examiner and an embedded reporter, now all in a race against time to find out the very who and the why behind the bizarre series of crimes. Can the investigative team crack the case before more victims fall to the Ripper's blade? Dark and deliciously evil, with villainy run amok, the novel is a bloody nail-biter that doesn’t let up and doesn’t let go; the ultimate in whodunits that will have you shrieking but coming back for more! Better fasten your seatbelts and don your sleuthing hats, then prepare for a roller-coaster drop and the most harrowing ride of your life: “DEAR BOSS: The Hunt for the New York Ripper”.

About the Author

Lawrence De Graw, born in the Bronx, NY, is a prolific writer who enjoys penning suspense novels most centered on international intrigue and “techno-thrillers” that are set to keep the reader on the edge of their seat and wanting more. After his years in the military, with 55 months spent overseas in both Korea and Okinawa, he returned home to pursue a formal course of study in East Asian Studies and Nipponology. From there, he launched a rewarding career in the IT industry as a Senior Corporate Technical Writer working in the Wall Street area for 23 years. When not pursuing his own creative writing objectives, he now makes his home in Ocala, FL, where he enjoys a wonderful family life and spends much of his time as an avid Naval Historian studying the many Pacific naval battles of WWII and frolicking in the backyard with a rowdy pack of Chihuahuas and apparently loving every minute of it.
