Overview

Good and Evil are about to collide.

In London's infamous East End, a ritualistic serial killer is slaughtering women. The police are baffled, the media is in a frenzy, and people the world over are captivated by the fiend known as Jack the Ripper.

Only a short distance away, the Great Detective has succumbed to an addiction to morphine and cocaine. His faithful friend, Dr. John Watson, and Irene Adler will venture into Whitechapel alone to try and lure the Ripper out of hiding using themselves as bait.

As darkness threatens to consume all of London, her greatest champion, the immortal Sherlock Holmes, will rise one final time to defend her.

WHITECHAPEL: THE FINAL STAND OF SHERLOCK HOLMES combines the actual events of the investigation into Jack the Ripper's crimes with the canon of Arthur Conan Doyle.

Historically accurate, graphic, and bold.

This is Sherlock Holmes as you've never seen him, and will never be able to forget.

Editorial Reviews

BookPleasures.com - Wesley Britton
Since Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s death in 1930, many a hand has taken a turn at re-imagining his most famous creation on radio, film, television, and in literature. Sherlock Holmes has battled Nazis, been thawed out in a cryogenics chamber, and updated to the 21st Century. It’s nothing new for a film or book to focus on Holmes addiction to the “seven percent solution” or have him track down the mysterious Jack the Ripper.
But few of these projects are as disturbing

    A seriously excellent, modern entry into the Holmes canon. Cert

    A seriously excellent, modern entry into the Holmes canon. Certainly not for the faint of heart, but this book takes risks in telling a new kind of SH story. I loved it. Perfect for anybody who enjoys books like SIlence of the Lambs.

    What Happened to Sherlock Holmes & Dr. Watson?

    I loved this book for the very fact that at the end you find out what happened to the world's greatest detective and his ever present Dr. Watson. Very enjoyable!

    If You Love Sherlock Holmes

    ... you will love this book! Yes it's graphic, but they called the killer Jack the Ripper for a reason. What I loved most about it, is at the end you find out what happens to Holmes and Watson. Excellent read!

    Jack the Ripper

    Reviewed by Author Anna del C Dye. for Readers Favorite

    I love Sherlock Holmes mysteries, and I looked forward to reading Whitechapel by Bernard J. Schaffer. However, I was very disappointed as I read his version of Holmes in this book. In thirteen chapters Sherlock Holmes was in it only twice and then only for a very short while. Most of the book was dedicated to what I will call Erotica. The very disturbed mind of the killer who seems to go about butchering prostitutes during the night is explicitly exposed with the most meticulous precision.

    Mr. Schaffer spends most of his time telling us in very descriptive detail the exact spot, and how deep, Jack the Ripper likes to cut women open and how entertained he was by the inside of women's bodies; also, how he and his friend like to go about masturbating or having oral sex with each other. Schaffer left nothing to the imagination, converting this book into a Horror Erotica. It is too gruesome to describe in this review.

    Doctor Watson tells the story that is mingled with pieces of other cases he and Holmes have worked on before. At this time, Doctor Watson is engaged to Mary, and Sherlock Holmes is trying to break his cocaine addiction with Watson's help.

    This could have been a great tale of the greatest mastermind detective of all time, but Schaffer turned it into a blood bath full of four letter words. Holmes' intuition and talent are seldom depicted throughout the tale. Schaffer respects no one in this book. For example: Inspector Lastrade, according to this author, is a man who takes favors with prostitutes and swears a lot throughout the story; so did all his colleagues on the police force.

    I feel Sir Arthur Conan Doyle is turning in his grave to see his work portrayed in such a fashion. It became tedious and insulting to me. I consider it a kinky adult book.
