Horror, both personal and professional, haunts the life and mind of forensic scientist Vanessa Descartes as she investigates a 'Jack the Ripper' copycat murder case. More
A brutal psychopath stalks the streets of Whitechapel, echoing the crimes of Jack the Ripper, 111 years before.
The police are scratching for clues. Only Vanessa believes she understands the true meaning of the case from a series of bizarre occult, historical and scientific anomalies that stretch their dark shadows over 10,000 years of human history.
As she infiltrates a cultish church based around the mythology of fallen angels, she begins to uncover even more terrifying details of a past she has tried to forget for so long...and one that she never knew she had, until now.
How can she convince the police that the trauma she experienced as a child, and the strange propensity for madness and suicide in her family, are essential to the investigation?
As she struggles to reconcile her lingering guilt over the tragic suicide of her elder sister with the baffling twists and turns of the case, Vanessa is forced to examine the depths of her own mind in a shattering descent into psychological horror which drags her to the blackest depths of human depravity, madness, and purest evil...and beyond...
'Venus in Saturn' is an uncompromising and disturbing slice of psychological horror which sets the background for the Trinity Chronicles.
It is followed by the sequel 'Maranatha', set 7 years later, which is also available on Smashwords.com.
