Publisher's Summary

April, 1890: London wakes to the shocking news of a mass prison escape. The Scotland Yard Murder Squad now face a desperate race against time: If they don't re-capture the four convicted murderers before night settles, they'll vanish into the dark alleys of the London's criminal underworld forever. And in the midst of this mayhem and fear, the city's worst nightmare is realised: Jack the Ripper haunts the streets of London once more.

"Will keep you riveted from page one" (Jeffrey Deaver)
"Throw in deranged prostitutes, poisonings and throat slittings galore, amidst lashings of London fog. Gory, lurid and tons of guilty fun" (Guardian)

As an Alex Grecian fan.......

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

It started out so well, I loved the books leading up to this one, and initially I was not disappointed..... but the further I got the less I liked. It is all so gory, which I can deal with but Jack simply takes over from the general well loved characters and left me cold.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

I think the concept was very good, if only the author had not become obsessed with Jack, much lost when the true people we came here for are overshadowed

What about Nigel Carrington’s performance did you like?

This was good - no fault. Good clear diction, lots of feeling, emotive and easy to follow

Do you think The Devil's Workshop needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

I know it has a follow up book and it most certainly will not be in my wish list

Any additional comments?

I was so excited to start this book.but its telling that I didnt finish reading it -

The Devils Workshop

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes. I have always enjoyed the era of the late 19th. century and Alex Grecian brings it to life with some great characters and a free flowing exciting storyline. For some it may seem a little gory but set in the time of Jack the Ripper the blood lust does not feel excessive. Indeed it transports the listener into the London of that time.

What did you like best about this story?

How the different characters interacted and were all brought through the story together.

What does Nigel Carrington bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Nigel Carrington is one of the better readers and he managed to portray so many different characters well enough to enable the listener to know exactly who is who and to follow the story very easily.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

At times.

Any additional comments?

I intend to purchase the Walter Day stories in the future as they become available.

Ok

I listened to this after listening to 'the Yard' by the same author. It follows many of the same characters. The story is quite entertaining, if a little predictable, but I have to say that some of the characters became a bit grating, after a while.
