The Return of the Ripper


Product Description
Product Details


The Return of the Ripper is perhaps the busiest Holmes novel in the canon, offering four cases for Sherlock to solve, a wedding, and the Ripper. And yet, the book doesn't feel overburdened, moving neatly from plot point to plot point without abruptness or haste. Lucy proves to be a marvelous addition to the world of Holmes. She is engaging, intelligent, and brings out another side to the Great Detective that readers rarely see. The Return of the Ripper is an intriguing take on both the Holmes canon and the most famous unsolved case in history. -The Seattle Book Review
This novel includes not one mystery, but a multitude. Anna Elliott and Charles Veley are able to weave these all together in a way that feels natural and perfectly Sherlockian. Lucy James allows for a mellowing of Sherlock's perpetually crime focused nature and the writing that Elliott and Veley do to make these characters work so well together is exceptionally well done. I cannot recommend this series enough to anyone who enjoys mysteries or Sherlock Holmes. - The Nerdy Girl Express Like the Sherlock Holmes chronicled before, this new book contains memorable rogues and angels, mysteries upon mysteries and nothing and no one ever appears as it/they really are. Throw in Lucy's upcoming wedding, Watson's romantic rekindling after his wife's death and Holmes coping with being a father, a soon to be father-in-law and a new set of emotions and feelings to deal with and you have a new Sherlock Holmes tale worthy of the classic Sir Arthur Conan Doyle mysteries. Boyce McClain (Collector's Corner) I LOVED this book. I have always been a huge Sherlock Holmes fan. I have read bad attempts at continuing his story and some good ones. This one is amazing. The authors perfectly captured the wit and sarcasm of Holmes. They captured the relationship between Watson and Holmes in a way that could have been written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. This is definitely a series that all Holmes fans will love. Felicia A. (NetGalley) It's 1897 and Lucy and Jack are planning their wedding. But a body is found, making the police believe that Jack has returned. Meanwhile Holmes is asked to investigate the theft of diamonds belonging to Cecil Rhodes. And Watson is asked to solve a series of thefts.I really enjoy this series, good mysteries, strong characters and well-written. Although this is a standalone story I would recommend reading from Book One, if not already done so, to follow the development of the characters and their interplay. Susan M. (NetGalley)
