The Whitechapel Ripper Must be Stopped

A madman on the loose, driven by dark urges and uncontrollable violence.
A hero, lost in the grip of addiction.
The greatest and most desperate criminal investigation in history.
Who will save us from Jack the Ripper?

The most terrifying, explicit, and realistic Sherlock Holmes story ever told.

Whitechapel: The Final Stand of Sherlock Holmes provides readers a rare look at the lives of the victims, the monster known as Jack the Ripper, and the characters of Arthur Conan Doyle's beloved stories. All are presented in a fresh and entirely new way. A entirely new realistic way.
Readers familiar with the Holmes stories will be shocked (and in some cases upset) with these new characterizations, but take heed as Gerard Lestrade transforms from doddering simpleton into an actual living and breathing detective assigned to the worst slum imaginable. They will be captivated by the reality of Holmes' addiction to cocaine and morphine. They will find themselves walking the cobblestone streets of Whitechapel, wondering if Bloody Jack's blade might be aimed at their throats next.

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.

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!

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.
