I love Sherlock Holmes books, movies, etc. So naturally, since this is basically a 'type' of Holmes book, I was intrigued. I like the way Mr. Matthews weaves the mystery. I just felt there were far too many frivolous characters.

I did not give this review 5 stars only because it is a short blurb. However, the book itself is really really good. I would sit down to read it and found that two hours had passed. I really enjoyed the investigative team of Argenti and Jameson and I like Lawrence as well. I learned something new with the Hebrew letters used in the book. Very interesting read!

I bought this book after seeing it at the local BN. Since I have a Nook HD+ I bought the Nook version. The book was an excellent read and I greatly enjoyed it. The only thing that could be done to improve the story in my opinion would be to take the pie-chapter 1 text and instead include it as an afterword regarding the actual history post-Ripper along with some places to begin exploring that. That said, the Nook version is marred by inexcusably bad proofing. I  was stunned by how bad it was. In looking at it, I became convinced someone merely copied the text from something like a MS Word document straight into an EPUB creator and didn't bother doing anything beyond that. Below is just my list of all the proofing errors I stumbled across: Page 18, fifth paragraph of chapter 3 - the word hand is duplicated. Page 18 - in the paragraph beginning "Argenti prided" is the duplicated h just before herringbone Page 26 - what is meant to be a footnote at the bottom appears in middle of page Page 28 - what is meant to be a footnote at the bottom appears in middle of page Page 70 - no closing quote on paragraph starting "Jameson nodded..." Page 92 - footnote in the paragraph starting "Tierney looked..." that isn't shown until the middle of page 93 Page 129 - footnote in paragraph that begins "Unlikely that..." which is not shown until the middle of page130 Page 253 - footnote in paragraph that begins the only friend is tied 2/3 down the page Page 302 - paragraph beginning "While thorough..." refers to Jameson when it should be Lawrence No breaks between sections. None. This made it difficult to read as it was near impossible to tell when one scene in the chapter ended and another began.
