SummaryAdd a Summary
The name of the Star is about Aurora "Rory" Deveaux, a girl from Louisiana, who chooses to spend a year in London at a boarding school called Wexford. On the day she arrives in London, a woman is murdered in the exact place, time, day, and way as the first Jack the Ripper murder from 1888. Soon more murders occur corresponding with the original dates of the Jack the Ripper "legend" in the same gruesomely way and London with its extensive CCTV cameras does not have a clue to who the culprit is. On the night of one of the murders, Rory sees a man. A man that her roommate does not see. Rory finds herself as the only person to have seen "the murder". Strange things start happening to Rory pulling her in to the midst of London's greatest mystery. It is up to Rory and her new found friends and the mysterious Shades of London to stop the Jack the Ripper copycat from killing the innocent.
