Jack the Ripper was England's most notorious serial murderer and butcher of women, Sherlock Holmes is the world's best known and most successful detective character. Jack the Ripper was never caught, Sherlock Holmes never failed. Both are creations of England's Victorian era, and both lived in the same city, London. It was inevitable that their paths would cross.
Sherlock Holmes and his associate and chronicler Doctor John Watson investigate these horrible crimes against women. There are no eye witnesses, and no immediately evident clues, but employing his astonishing powers of observation and logical deduction, Holmes is able to identify the Ripper, who is a member of the Royal family. Holmes requests a personal meeting, and he and Watson are invited to Buckingham palace, where they meet with and talk face to face with the man who Holmes knows to be Jack the Ripper. Holmes presents the detailed evidence against him, and then- but read the book, and find out.
This book is historically accurate regarding Jack the Ripper and his horrible crimes, and is written in the style of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, creator of Sherlock Holmes. There are six interior photographic illustrations, and the cover image is a police photograph of a Jack the Ripper crime scene victim.
