Publisher's Summary

Ellery Queen and Sherlock Holmes match wits to reveal the identity of history's most infamous killer.

Ellery Queen and Sherlock Holmes are the undisputed masters of analytical deduction - their talents and methods strikingly, almost uncannily, alike. Through the strange interlocking of events past and present, the two celebrated detectives meet to focus their razor-sharp intellects - and their brilliant powers of observation - on the mystery of…Jack the Ripper.

History's most depraved murderer, Jack the Ripper found victims who were the whores of Whitechapel. Lurking in narrow, fog-shrouded alleys, he crept forth night after night to murder - and mutilate. Eluding Scotland Yard'smost heroic efforts to track him down, the Ripper continued to satisfy his unnatural appetites, unrestrained - and unidentified! Can Queen and Holmes unmask the notorious killer?

Uniquely imaginative, A Study in Terror is a masterpiece of mystery and suspense.

Interesting take on the story

Ellery Queen is working on his latest book and fighting a deadline when a friend brings him a manuscript, a lost memoir by Dr. Watson, chronicling Sherlock Holmes' involvement with Jack the Ripper. The true facts of the Ripper murders are played with a little, and the ending of the movie is totally changed, but this was an interesting take on the tale. Robert Fass does good with the Holmes/Watson parts, not so good with the Ellery bits.

The ultimate mystery/detective triad

Sherlock Holmes, Jack the Ripper and Ellery Queen all in one novel creates a mystery readers ideal. While many authors have tried to match Arthur Conan Doyle's tone and flow, no one has matched as well as Ellery Queen. A wonderful mystery filled with classic characters.
