Daniela Green’s life is turned upside down when her mother is found murdered in her own home. The brutality of the murder leads Scotland Yard to blame the crime on a suspect they call ‘The New Ripper.’ A few months later, the spectacular Liz bursts into the lives of Daniela and her father Professor Leonard Green. Liz seems little more than a vulgar arriviste until the professor is found tied up with his throat slit in his office in Cambridge.
The only person who seems to hold the secret to these awful events is Richard Chanfray, an enigmatic young man who confesses that he and the professor were researching the possibility of travelling through space and time. From that moment on, Daniela’s life becomes a race against time to find out who her father really was and to try to prevent his discoveries ending up in the murderer’s hands.
