From December 1884 to December 1885 a series of murders occurred in Austin, Texas which became known as the Servant Girl Annihilator murders. One of the suspects was a Malay cook, known only as Maurice. Before he could be apprehended, Maurice disappeared. It is presumed he went back to the ships to work. He told his employer at the Pearl House on Pecan Street that he was going to work his way over to London. When Maurice was gone, the murders mysteriously stopped.
Three years later, in 1888, the Jack the Ripper murders began. Among the hundreds of suspects was a Malay cook who called himself Maurice. A seaman named Dodge, told London police that the cook threatened to kill every prostitute in London as revenge for being robbed.
This is Maurice's story, from his point of view. However, Maurice is innocent, but he slowly begins to realize that the true killer is his friend and life-long companion named Mawken. How far will Maurice go to stop the bloodshed?
Mr. Lee has uncovered new, previously unpublished information in his research that opens new insights into the unsolved murders in Austin.
