In the midst of his discoveries, he learned the workings of the criminal mind. Fifteen years before, a serial killer stalked the city. Then, LeMesurier’s unique skills in delving into the secrets of the darkest of human minds, brought him to the attention of the British Secret Service and Scotland Yard. Now, a new terror walks the streets. LeMesurier is called from his private practice and is again enlisted by Scotland Yard. Is this the same killer as before, and, if so, why is there a gap between the murderous sprees? The only thing they have to go on is a name, Jack the Ripper. More info →

What if your body becomes a 3D printed copy of the original and something goes wrong during the copying process? Manned space exploration is romantic, heroic and maybe even necessary for human survival, but with an AI unit in charge of the mission, what would the role of the human crew members actually be? Electric vehicles may be the future of surface transportation. Does this mean that the traditional gun firing, tyre squealing cops and robbers car chase is a thing of the past? Author Peter N Bernfeld takes a quirky look at technology both on the drawing boards and imagined but yet- to -be invented, and discovers some hidden snags that nobody seems to have thought of.
