  1. Full review can be found here.

    At the start of the book, I was sold. As I suspect is the case with many people, I find Jack the Ripper to be a fascinating case. He did, after all, go down in infamy. Due to the fact that we know so little about him, this allows authors to let their imagination go wild with ideas for what could have happened, both fantasy- and reality-based.

There are foes at every turn and a deeper, darker mystery that he must get to the bottom of if he hopes to prevent the murders of people he ca

  5. I made one mistake. I judged a book by its cover. And now I have very mixed emotions about this whole book; I really can’t wrap my head around it.
    Two things attracted me to this book. The first was the book cover, and I know I shouldn’t really do that but I’m sure we are all guilty of it.
