Publisher's Summary

Many people have asked why the paths of Sherlock Holmes and Jack the Ripper never crossed, since the two men were contemporaries in London in 1888. There have even been some scurrilous suggestions that Holmes was himself the Ripper. The paths of the two men did indeed cross. Holmes and Watson knew precisely who the real Ripper was and even where he lived. They also knew exactly what happened to him. If you have the stomach for it, listen and all will be revealed!

Not that good.

Holmes wasn't portrayed as being clever, or observant, in fact, the story wasn't "Holmes-like" at all.
Narrator has a deep voice, which is nice but he spoke much too fast. The accents, to me, sounded more like a common class person rather than upper class British like Holmes, Watson and the "Lady."
When I slowed the listening speed so narrator didn't sound rushed, the results were comedic .

Fast talking

The reader/ narrator is talking so fast that it to away my ability to relax and enjoy the book. I didn't even want to listen anymore because of this. I can not speak to the storyline of this book.

Pulse-pounding performance

Expert, exciting narration nearly conceals the thin plot and lack of confrontation. Worth a listen.
