Author Bernard Schaffer hits it out of the park with a stylish, fictionalized story of the notorious killer Jack the Ripper with one of the ultimate investigators in fiction, Sherlock Holmes. As expected, it’s not for the faint of heart, but the book reads smoothly and carries the reader into the world of Dr. Watson and his relationship with the aging Sherlock Holmes. The horrific nature of the crimes returns the love/hate relationship of Holmes with law enforcement officials. The story carries beyond the investigation by Watson’s narrative of the lives of those involved, and the ultimate destination of Sherlock Holmes, revealing the people that affected his life the most. This is an excellent book for horror genre, Sherlock Holmes fans, or mystery fans that can handle the graphics. Congratulations, five stars!
