Trevor Bentley's life would never be the same after that night. What he saw and heard would have driven many men mad. But for Trevor it was the beginning of a quest, an obsession to stop the most notorious murderer in history. The killer's trail of blood will lead Trevor from the fog-shrouded alleys of London to the streets of New York and beyond. But Trevor will not stop until he comes face to face with the ultimate horror.

    "Boring"
    What would have made Savage better?

    There were too many side stories for my liking. My mind started to wander after a while.


    Has Savage turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    I wanted to like this book and the way it started out was very promising. However, the chase for the ripper was too meandering and tedious. I ended up skipping chapters just so I could see how it ended, only to find that I didn't care anymore.

    Story
    "THIS IS A WESTERN!!"
    Would you try another book from Richard Laymon and/or Peter Bishop?

    Not likely. The first few chapters tell a chilling story of the Ripper's last murder, but then the story takes a detour from the dark fog-filled back alleys of Whitechapel to....wait for it....the Wild, Wild West and side stories about train robberies, desperadoes, saloon shoot-outs, and even a traveling snake oil salesman! Additionally, about 20 or more people are killed in the presence of our plucky hero, yet he manages to escape every one of them thanks to what he describes as "a bit of luck." Preposterous!


    Would you ever listen to anything by Richard Laymon again?

    No


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    It was tedious and frustrating listening to desperadoes and cowboys in the 1888's talk with an English accent.


    What character would you cut from Savage?

    Almost all of them. Too many side stories that brought nothing to the story. The author should have stuck with Jack the Ripper and Whitechapel instead of sidetracking us with other characters that never fully developed. We knew very little about these people and cared less.


    Any additional comments?

    This was an extremely boring listen. I was disappointed and skipped most of the latter chapters just to get to the ending.
