Publisher's Summary

"If you've missed Laymon, you've missed a treat." - Stephen King

Whitechapel, November 1888: Jack the Ripper is committing his last known murder and beneath the bed on which he's butchering his victim cowers a fifteen-year-old boy. So begin the adventures of Trevor Bentley: a boy who embarked on an errand of mercy and ended up on a quest for vengeance, a boy who will bring the horrors of the Ripper to the New World.

A SHIRT WAS JUST WHAT I NEEDED

FOR A DAMSEL IN DISTRESS SHE SEEMED A TRIFLE BOSSY
Having read two of Laymon's shorter works, this was not what I expected. While it had plenty of bodies being cut up in the first three hours, it was written in a 1800's London style. The writing style took away from any possible suspense and made the horror parts seem almost comical. If this had been a six to eight hour book, I could have hung on, but having to listen to another ten hours, just seemed daunting.

entertainingly

I'm not sure if it was the narrator's performance or what, but this book ended up being both disturbing AND hilarious at the same time!

Awesome story!!

Didn't know what to expect but surprisingly enough, it kept me engrossed until the end. The characters are awesome and the ending couldn't have been better.
