Carrie Brown was an aging prostitute who was murdered Jack the Ripper-style in New York in 1891. The case stirred up a media frenzy, and after many twists and turns, the main suspect was eventually acquitted. All we know about the killer is... Mary Healy, who had been drinking with Carrie Brown the night before, and Mary Minter were taken into custody for questioning and protection against the killer returning to silence the witnesses. They told police about seeing Carrie with a man called Frenchy and, with little else to go on, the police began rounding up suspects named Frenchy. But they never found the right one. He mysteriously disappeared. It's clearly obvious that Jeff Francoeur has the ability to travel through time and act upon his Dantesque visions and urges. London 1888, New York 1891, who knows what else, when else, where else--and what better front for a serial killer traveling around America today than a pro baseball player? When Francoeur fails to turn up for spring training in 2013, leaving no earthly trace behind him but a few random unsolved cases, don't say you weren't warned in advance.
