Overview

Jack The Ripper was an infamous killer and mutilating butcher of women, who was never caught. Sherlock Holmes is a famous and successful consulting detective, who solves his every case. Both came from the same era, the Victorian, and lived in the same city, London. It was inevitable their paths would cross.
Jack The Ripper was an all too real serial killer, while Sherlock Holmes is the brilliant imaginary creation of Sir Arthur Conan-Doyle, Scottish physician turned author. Therefore the interaction of Jack The Ripper and Sherlock Holmes is an intimate combination of fact and fiction. I have been true to the circumstances and nature of Jack The Ripper's crimes, and to the characters of Sherlock Holmes and Doctor John Watson, his associate, friend and chronicler. If Sherlock Holmes had taken the case against Jack The Ripper, then the actions of both men might very well have been just as I describe them.
Sherlock Holmes was justly famous for never failing to solve a case. Once his astonishing powers of observation, scientific examination, and detection were applied, no doubt Jack The Ripper would be identified. Once identified, his apprehension would be just a matter of time, and justice would follow swiftly via the hangman's noose, no matter who he was ... or would it?
To discover the book's surprising climax, you must read it. If you would like to read about Jack The Ripper versus Sherlock Holmes, then read this book.

    If you like Sherlock Holems, you might want to add this little book to your collection. There is a bit of historical information here. Definitely different. The author writes with a smooth prose that is easy to read.
