This book is an well-written obscenity. If one were able to give a book a negative five star rating, this one would deserve it. If you love the character of Sherlock Holmes, with all his strengths and flaws, this book will leave you traumatized and enraged. Fair warning.

Poorly done.

An exciting, chilling tale that's lots of fun for both Sherlockians and Ripper aficionados alike. One must be prepared to put some of the Holmes 'facts' and continuity to one side, however, as events in this novel don't quite work if they are slavishly matched against what has been established before.

Perhaps the most controversial Holmes pastiche written, this original novel is possibly the most prized pastiche is my collection. Few Sherlockians are ambivalent about this one. I genuinely enjoyed it and the fearlessness Dibdin showed in attacking his subject matter. Not for everyone, but I recommend it strongly.

Knowing Holmes primarily from the old movies and not from books, I didn't know what I was getting into with this book. With the different focus and surprise ending, I was drawn to other (Doyle's) Holmes stories. I actually enjoyed this more than those, feeling the older ones a little slow.

Nice short novel that keeps true to Doyles works.

I found this book a well written pastiche on the Sherlock Holmes stories. Most of it felt like A.C.D. could have written it himself. However, I cannot approve of the plot. For me it undermines the value of the entire canon. I appreciate the skill but find the story repugnant.
