The Last Pleasure Garden by Lee Jackson
A sinister figure stalks the gas-lit groves of Cremorne Gardens, the last-pleasure-ground on the banks of the Thames. His weapon: a sharp pair of scissors. His victims: young women in the first bloom of youth. His crime: merely to remove a lock of their hair. Inspector Decimus Webb of Scotland Yard suspects a harmless lunatic is at large. But when morbid obsession turns to murder, even Webb’s loyal sergeant begins to doubt his judgment.As the press and his superiors clamour for answers, Webb’s investigations lead him to Rose Perfitt, aspiring debutante and daughter of a respectable stockbroker. Will she fall prey to “The Cutter” or does a worse fate beckon? One thing is certain — only Decimus Webb can save her.
