Publisher's Summary

Cyrus Barker is undoubtedly England's premiere private enquiry agent. With the help of his assistant, Thomas Llewelyn, he's developed an enviable reputation for discreetly solving some of the toughest, most consequential cases in recent history. But one evening in 1888, Robert Anderson, the head of Scotland Yard's Criminal Investigation Department (CID), appears at Barker's office with an offer. A series of murders in the Whitechapel area of London are turning the city upside down, with tremendous pressure being brought to bear on Scotland Yard and the government itself. Barker is to be named temporary envoy to the Royal Family with regard to the case while surreptitiously bringing his investigative skill to the case. With various elements of society, high and low, bringing their own agendas to increasingly shocking murders, Barker and Llewellyn must find and hunt down the century's most notorious killer.

Though the Whitechapel Killer has managed to elude the finest minds of Scotland Yard - and beyond - he's never faced a mind as nimble and a man as skilled as Cyrus Barker. But even Barker's prodigious skills may not be enough to track down a killer in time.

    Story
    "As expected"
    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    The narrator gets his accents wrong multiple times. For example, at one point in the book someone sounds Irish and in another he sounds British aristocrat. It is annoying.

    "Above average, better than expected"
    If you could sum up Anatomy of Evil in three words, what would they be?

    Three words, not enough, as with all the books in this series, the story of Barker and Llewelyn, plus the other cast of characters contribute to an otherwise well known formula. You care about what happens to them.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Llewelyn, as the story is often in his voice


    Which character – as performed by Antony Ferguson – was your favorite?

    He does a fine job with everyone, male and female


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    would prefer a tv series


    Any additional comments?

    This is the last book currently available on audible, still two books to be recorded. I hope the sale of this series will entice audible continue with the remaining books, and hopefully more books in the future.

    Listened to whole series and recommend it highly. Be sure to listen to the previous books to get the most from this one.

    Any additional comments?

    I love this series and enjoyed all of them. This particular entry is however, the weakest story presented so far. It is a unique take on the ripper based on historical facts but it is too much of a retelling and not enough of a new spin. Anthony Ferguson as always is a brilliant voice artist and it would be worth listening to this entry just for him.

    "Thoroughly enjoy each new book!!!"

    Three books ago, in this series, I started feeling as if I'm not just listening to the stories, but as if I really know Barker and Llewellyn! Will Thomas writes in a way that draws you right into the time period, characters, and circumstances! This series reminds me of the Murdoch Mysteries, which I'm also a big fan of, as well as Sherlock Holmes! The end of this book, Anatomy of Evil, lets us know that there is more to come! Thank you Will Thomas, you are a master story teller!
