Summary:

Utopia - A Time Machine and a Ticket to Trouble

H. G. Wells invented it in 1893, dreaming of traveling to a flawless future. But when Jack the Ripper, almost caught in the act of committing yet another bloody and infamous crime, broke into Wells's laboratory and found it - he used it.

The machine whisked Jack to twentieth century San Fransisco, where the limitless possibilities for his unique brand of violence made him feel completely at home.

Wells took up the desperate chase through time to stop a killer, to find love - with a woman a century younger - and to enter a future far more wonderful...and terrifying...than anything he'd imagined yet.
