Sherlock Holmes & The  Ripper Legacy

Reviewed in the Sherlock Holmes Journal

This novel is one of David Stuart Davies’ best, intriguing and engaging from start to finish. I was a little afraid that this might be another Jack the Ripper meets Sherlock Holmes tale, but it’s actually something very different.

The plot revolves around the kidnapping of an eight-year-old boy, whose family engage the Great Detective to investigate. Holmes and Watson are drawn into a shadowy world of secrecies and conspiracies and face a race against time to unravel the overlapping strands of the case. Davies’ writing is first rate and the structure of the book works well – short, punchy chapters, easily devoured, leading you to want to read more…and more. At times it is almost cinematic in feel and would work well as a television or film adaptation. Including bits of narrative from the perspective of different characters, alongside Dr Watson, added a fresh dimension. In short, a good story told with great skill and affection.
