5.0 out of 5 starsThe Watcher gives new dimensionality to the world of Jack the Ripper
Reviewed in the United States on October 22, 2017
If you love Jack the Ripper fiction, you'll want to own this one. Written by A.L. Butcher, it is lyrical and beautifully written, despite coming to grips with the darkness of its subject matter. I found it enthralling.

The Watcher by A.L. Butcher is a tale of Jack the Ripper, told from the killer's POV. I wouldn't necessarily categorize this as horror. There's no build up of suspense, no mystery, just a graphic description of another brutal murder by the Ripper. I will give props to the author for painting such a morbid, visceral slaughter, but it takes more than violence and gore to be truly frightening. Even with a glimpse from the victim's POV, this is more of show-and-tell than anything else.
