is missing complete chapters. Written by a fourth grader?? This kind of garbage is embarrassing. One star would be very generous. Couldn't make it half way through. Save your money, this one really stinks on ice. - in fact, minus one star
Anyway, this really is the greatest of all Holmes crime stories ~ I mean, Jack the the freaking Ripper eluded capture & just walked (sadly for the poor women of Whitechapel)! Who else would have been better qualified to catch that slippery S.O.B. but the illustrious Sherlock Holmes - the greatest detective to [N]ever [have] live[d], right? It's really such a shame Holmes was fictional, truly unfortunate, since Scotland Yard was so much less equipped [cough, cough: INCOMPETENT!] to deal with and/or solve elusive crimes committed by a really intelligent, super slick master-mind criminal/ego-maniac as The Ripper, [a.k.a: "Jack-the-Knife", or the Leather Apron. [*NOTE: Although Jack made local law enforcement look like a bunch of bumbling buffoons, one could argue that perhaps it would be more politically correct to say the Yard was "less evolved" back then? Yes, that would be a kinder, gentler way to put it I suppose ... however, I'm betting those poor women whom so unjustly died a painful & terrifying death at the hands of a psychotic maniac probably weren't too concerned about the feelings of Scotland Yard.
So, we all know the story: Jack, with raw nerve, a cool head (and perhaps a bit of sheer luck) committed some of the most notoriously fiendish, depraved & disgusting acts of inhumanity toward mankind as never before documented nor imagined previously. And, for a lunatic with super-sized bravado, he proved to be too slick for authorities - evading capture and never taking credit for, or officially paying for his crimes (perhaps he had not only a bit of luck, but excellent survival instincts? Maybe the "Leather Apron" had an accomplice? All we really know for sure is that the rat-bastard was never knowingly caught, nor officially brought to justice - although we can hope that the universe meted out a sticky end, worthy of a very unpleasant karma-like justice!).
It's really too bad Sir Arthur Conan Doyle was a physician/fiction crime writer instead of a detective, because he sure had the right idea for advanced crime solving techniques that law enforcement sure didn't seem to have a solid grasp of at that time. One could argue that his innovative ideas for fictional crime writing laid the foundation for modern crime solving. Who knows - if Doyle had instead been a Bobbie for the Yard back in the day, maybe the world's first credited serial killer may not have walked free - perhaps that black-hearted demon may have swung from the gallows, where he rightly belonged - and most certainly deserved!
Believe me (or not), if you like Sherlock Holmes stories, and are morbidly fascinated by the crime spree of Jack the Ripper, the most notorious serial killer/criminal of Victorian era England, this book is a must read! It's soooooo worth it - check it out, you'll be glad you did! Doyle is a genius!
seems to be one of his favourite characters to write about, but I think he does a pretty good
job. I found the story unique and catching.
