What did you like best about this story?
I'm not normally one to write a review, but I have to say, I was just blown away by the combination of Sarah Pinborough's clever spin on the Ripper folklore and Steven Crossley's spot on narration. Seriously, if you like a story full of murder and mayhem and a little bit of the supernatural, do yourself a favor and read and/or listen to this one.

After reading other reviews I approached this book with interest but low expectations. The book began well and grew more interesting the more I listened.
As often as I've read books written set in this time and place I was pleased to find the author set the mood and events with a fresh eye. She skillfully sidesteps a host of clichés. The characters are complex and interesting. The protagonist set with all manner of conflicts. Yes, well done. It is an excellent read/listen. I will listen/read the sequel to this book and other books by this author.

This was the first time I've 'read' anything by Sarah Pinborough or heard Steven Crossley read and I will be looking out for both of them again - a great combination of gripping story and excellent narration.

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?
This is quite enjoyable at times, however, the supernatural element is vague and just too weird to truly be a great novel. Think of a very weakly described Dr Jeckyl type, it spoils what could have been a great idea. Better than some but by no means Stoker!
Would you ever listen to anything by Sarah Pinborough again?
Listened to Murder as well. Pretty much the same. Never again, though!
