In the late seventies an extraordinary document came to light which for fifty years had been held on deposit by the bankers of the deceased John Herbert Watson MD - better known to devotees of Conan Doyle as Dr Watson.

A continuous narrative in the doctor's own hand, the story opens in the East End of London in 1888. Three women have been savagely murdered by Jack the Ripper. To calm the public outcry, Scotland Yard approaches London's most eminent detective, Sherlock Holmes, and asks him to investigate the mystery.

The adventures of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's famous detective and his faithful companion Dr Watson are given a new and thrilling treatment by Michael Dibdin.

    " This novel sends Sherlock Holmes after Jack the Ripper (who he eventually claims is Professor Moriarty). I thought this was absurd, why would a criminal mastermind and king of organized crime just go out and start butchering hookers? The story gets better when you realize that there is more to Sherlock Holmes than meets the eye. The story takes on a Jekyll/Hyde twist that actually becomes quite suspenseful. Holmes lovers will be offended by this yarn to a degree, but as a suspense story it holds it's own.... "

    " More a 3.5 ......It had an interesting take on the whole whitechapel murders, Holmes story, if a tad far fetched, still enjoyable "

    " Brilliant. The best of the post-Conan Doyle Sherlock Holmes books. "

    " Looking through the other reviews, I can see that either you love this book or you hate it. I'm in the first group. First, Dibdin shows you that he can capture the flavor of the old Arthur Conan Doyle stories perfectly; then, not content with merely imitating, he adds some disturbing new elements to the legend. In the afterword, he asks you to forgive him. It's heresy, he freely admits, but the heresy of the true believer. An eloquent and accurate summary! "
