I am not an ACD elitist I enjoy Sherlock Holmes in all of his varied forms and stories and Whitechapel was a great read in my opinion I m a reader who wants to be entertained and this story had it Mystery violence heartache I devoured this book in one sitting couldn t ut it down The characters were so real to me they even eclipsed the characters I had built up in my mind after watching Sherlock on the BBC and reading ACD collections all winter Schaffer made the characters his own and made them very human The book was graphic in Tabloid City places but the Ripper was a monster and his crimes shouldn t be whitewashed in order not to offend a certain readership In the beginning I felt as if I were reading two separate books and wondered howif they were ever going to merge in to a cohesive unit and then POW They did and the story just never slowed downI enjoyed the newold British slang Iicked up along the way tooI m going to recommend this to the Sherlock group I m a Kirkland Revels part of and to anyone else looking for a fastaced mystery that has heart I won t say much in the way of spoilers here and maybe I m a sentimental old fool but I m not going to lie was moved to tears in several To Him Who Sits on the Throne places I really want to get this one and read it It sounds so good I am just so backloggedSomeday1111 This is the vilestiece of stuff that I had the misfortune to read in some time It is utter rubbish on the following counts 1 Mere usage of two creatures named Sherlock Holmes Watson does not make a book a astiche The author should be hauled up for lain simple charatcer assassination by any Sherlockian2 Even as a Ripper novel the book fails utterly The research is shoddy if not non existent and even the descriptions do not tally with the reality for that I would recommend readers to go through books by Philip Sugden and other scholars3 Sherlock Holme a cocaine addict as a theme has been done to death So has been done with Druitt and all other charatcers whose names had cropped up during the investigations into the killings4 The language is so thick with Youth, Beautiful Youth present day Americanism s that even to describe it as a book dealing with events of 1888 would be wrongNo this book actually doesn t deserve any stars but Goodreads wouldn t allow it But unless you This is the Gentlemen's Edition of Bernard J Schaffer's shocking novel WHITECHAPEL THE FINAL STAND OF SHERLOCK HOLMES Edited to remove therofanity and gore of the original it is designed for sensitive readers who still want to enjoy a realistic ortrayal of the Jack the Ripper events and a startling new rendition of Arthur Conan Doyle's classic charactersGood and Evil are about to collide In London's infamous East End.
