Overview

In DARK STREETS OF WHITECHAPEL, Ripperologist and bestselling true crime author R. Barri Flowers delivers a heart-pounding fictionalized account of real life Victorian era serial killer Jack the Ripper.
In 1888 in New York City, the search for a killer of prostitutes comes to an end with the capture of Doctor Jack Lewiston, a respected surgeon and madman. But before he can go to trial, Jack escapes from custody and flees the country to London, England.
Brought out of retirement to track him down is ex-NYC homicide detective-criminologist Henry Marboro. In charge of the original investigation into the “Ripper Murders,” Henry lost his objectivity when his younger sister was one of Jack’s victims. Ultimately his obsession to find the killer cost him his career, his wife, and some time in a hospital for alcohol treatment.
Now on a renewed mission, Henry must find Jack Lewiston and bring him back to America--dead or alive--hopefully before more prostitutes become the victims of the serial killer.
In the process, Henry develops an attraction for a mysterious and beautiful American nurse, Loraine Broderick, who lives in London. Unfortunately, Jack also has his sights set on her as a target of his madness in addition to ladies of the night streetwalking in Whitechapel in London’s East End.

    Disappointing

    I was quite disappointed in this book, which the overview promised was thrilling. It is not. It is graphic and disgusting rather than suspenseful, as the author tips his hand at the beginning and reveals not only the killer's identity, but also the psychological motivation behind his compulsion. The latter is told in lurid detail, as voyeuristic as his grossly detailed descriptions of each murder committed by the Ripper. In its own way, this little book is a cheap bit of pornography. Don't waste your money.

    I Also Recommend:

    Dark Streets of Whitechapel was an excellent and every realistic

    Dark Streets of Whitechapel was an excellent and every realistic read as a tale about Jack the Ripper. You really feel as though you have been transported back to 1888. The author clearly knows his stuff on serial killers and prostitutes, what drives them in their respective trades, and then some. Also does a great job in telling a love story and humanizing the Ripper beyond his dark side.

    Highly recommended to anyone with an interest in Jack the Ripper, Victorian England, or just a fast read, captivating historical thriller.
