I'm delighted to have yet another 5 star review for my Victorian Murder Mystery, Behind Closed Doors. Big thank you to reader Broadway Turk Superstar, aka author, 
5.0 out of 5 stars Railway To Hell?

Behind Closed Doors by Brian L. Porter is another of the author’s suspense-charged mystery novels, taking us to London at the turn of the century during Jack the Ripper’s reign of terror. Inspector Albert Norris is assigned by his superior, Chief Inspector Joshua Madden, to investigate a series of murders that closely resembles those of the maniacal Ripper in the Whitechapel area of London. Only these killings are being perpetrated along the Metropolitan Railway network, and Norris begins to suspect a copycat slayer at large. While following clues leading to the director of the railway, Laurence Bellhaven, he gets pushback from unlikely sources including Madden himself. Is it a cover-up, coincidence, or possibly a connection to the notorious Ripper across a new hunting ground?

The legend of Jack the Ripper greatly enhances the atmosphere of this cozy mystery. No wonder as Porter has been acclaimed for previous works on the legendary serial killer. His authority on the subject lends itself to the authenticity of the storyline and keeps us guessing as we try to separate facts from speculation throughout. As his readers are aware, the author always brings the British community to life with masterful storytelling. This is another for his audience’s collection as well as a worthy starting point for new readers. Behind Closed Doors by Brian L. Porter is a great read for mystery lovers of all ages.

While the population of fog-shrouded London is horrified by Jack the Ripper's murder spree, another, less publicized killer is at large.
Tucked away on the inner pages of the daily press, a few articles tell of the strange murders on board the carriages of the London Metropolitan Railway. Each murder takes place right after the Ripper killings, as the murderer appears to be taking advantage of the lack of police resources to tackle two major investigations simultaneously.
Inspector Albert Norris is charged with bringing the railway killer to justice, but clues are few and the killer's motive unclear. Norris has to carry out his investigation 'quietly and without causing a public panic', as the authorities try to maintain confidence in the railway system's safety. The press knows even less, and Norris can count on little help from above as he attempts to solve the inexplicable series of murders.
