Overview

Would Sherlock Holmes be able to catch Jack the Ripper?Everyone knows the name of Sherlock Holmes - the fictional detective created by Arthur Conan Doyle with his superhuman powers of observation and unbeatable methodology for solving crimes. But could his 1800's philosophy really work in the modern world to solve genuine crimes? That's the very question that a real-life US-based private detective asked himself before embarking on the adventure of a lifetime by stepping into Holmes' shoes and using his mindset to solve real crimes. So effective was this method that he decided to turn his attention to the greatest set of crimes known in history - the brutal murders perpetrated by the criminal who came to be known as Jack the Ripper. The author, along with a team of three of the world's top forensic scientists and criminologists, Dr. Michael M. Baden, Dr. Cyril H. Wecht and Dr. Henry C. Lee, have convincingly solved the infamous Jack the Ripper murders of 1888 London - arguably the world's most talked-about unsolved murder mystery. But their true-life resolution of the case is presented here in the form of a Sherlock Holmes novel, painstakingly penned faithfully in the style of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. In it, the author - who actually used Holmes' methods to uncover the killers' identity - explains exactly how the crimes were committed and by whom, all in the form of a fast-paced thriller featuring the world's most beloved detective along with Dr. Watson, from whose point-of-view most of the tale is told. Once the reader has finally been clued in on the final solution, the murders are then revisited from the killers' perspective. The story opens in the year 2017 with the sealed box of Holmes' most controversial cases being opened by Watson's great grandson Jacob, and among those cases is that of London's Ripper murders that took place in what was then and has forever after been known as the "Autumn of Terror." Jacob is shocked to learn the true story, as well as the reasons Holmes deemed the case's explosive resolution too shocking and incendiary to have been revealed to the public in Victorian England and so to be sealed "entombed in a tin box" for 125 years, as were a number of other cases that are mentioned in some of Doyle's Holmes stories. Along the way, the actual facts of the case and the evidence that led Randy and his team to the real killer will be revealed to the reader through Holmes' investigative methods.
