* YankTheDogsChain: Talbot's finally managed to [[spoiler:concoct a remedy that lets him retain his mind when he transforms, even during a full moon. He uses it to intervene on the side of the Closers ... just in time to get sucked into another dimension full of Lovecraftian horrors.]]

* BeethovenWasAnAlienSpy: It's rather obvious that Jack is ''[[JackTheRipper that]]'' Jack, but he's also a Player and there's a wild rumor among magic-users that he's immortal Cain himself.

* VillainProtagonist: He doesn't act like one, but the reader is rooting for JackTheRipper to save the world. In a different sense, much of the book is spent trying to figure out who is on which side, and there are some surprises before the end. Someone the reader thinks is a hero may turn out to be a villain or vice versa. [[spoiler:In the final analysis, all named Closers are more or less traditional antagonists.]]
* VillainyDiscretionShot: Jack, as a sympathetic protagonist, is never shown doing any of the things JackTheRipper is infamous for. There are mentions of occasional trips in to London, and elsewhere mentions of a series of murders that has London police roused, but the two are never explicitly connected or shown in detail. There is one scene in which Jack stalks a woman through the dark streets of London, but it's a fake-out: he turns out to be after something she's carrying, and nobody is harmed.
