I received a free copy from the Publisher, but I chose to read this book and all opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased. Thank you, Sapere Books!
This book was great it is an easy read with some fantastic characters and I was hooked right from the first page and flew through the story!
I love the mystery that surrounds the murders of Jack the Ripper and this book has just the right amount of suspense to give the crimes a slightly different edge - it isn't going to be for die hard Ripper fans but for me it was a fun read that I really, really enjoyed - five stars from me, I really enjoyed it and look forward to reading more in the Esther and Jack Enright series!
Esther Jacobs is horrified when her friend and neighbour Martha, is brutally killed one night when they had been out together. Martha was certainly known for drinking too much and being a lady of the night before she got married, however not going home with Esther wasn’t certainly a mistake. After seeing Martha’s body, Detective Sergeant Jack Enright knows he’s looking for a very violent killer, especially with how many times she has been stabbed. Jack interviews Esther, as she was one of the last people to see Martha alive. Esther didn’t get out much as she worked as a seamstress from her room, so she’s quite surprised at the chemistry her and Jack have when they first meet each other. When a second woman is killed in the same manner as Martha, Scotland Yard are quick to step in and take over the investigation. However, this isn’t going to stop Jack and Martha in continuing their own investigation, as it certainly doesn’t look like this killer is going to stop anytime soon. I’d certainly recommend this book as an enjoyable read, and I’m looking forward to book two in the series.
<I>Wait</I>. Let's try a different format.
*I do appreciate the inclusion of marginalized characters (Esther and her pseudo-parents are Jewish).
*An interesting take on the Jack the Ripper investigation and a culprit I don't think I was expecting.
*Character transition/changes in POV were not always well delineated or always interesting.
*And Esther and Jack? I do not ship. Their chemistry is just not there.
*To my knowledge, and I will admit that I am perhaps not an expert, but why for the love of all that's holy, why did the language, the diction, the word choices constantly shift back and forth between modern vernacular and more standard examples of Victorian English?!
*The ending, and I mean the actual ending, a cross between gag me with a spoon and boring.
Verdict: if I have the chance, I'll likely read book two with the hopes that the story will be interesting, but I will likely never reread this as I tend to do with books I enjoy.
