Just Wow.

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.

A Parallel Ripper

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.
