Publisher's Summary

It is 1891, and London is still reeling from the horror of the unsolved Ripper murders when Inspector Lestrade is sent to the Isle of Wight to investigate a strange corpse found walled up in Shanklin Chine.
It is merely the beginning of a series of brutal and bizarre killings so apparently random, that only a warped genius could be responsible. Even when Lestrade pieces together the extraordinary pattern behind the crimes from the anonymous poems sent after each murder, he is no closer to knowing the identity of the sinister, self-styled “Agrippa”. It becomes a very personal battle and Lestrade's desperate race to avert the next death takes him from London to the Pennines and back.

An interesting read

A nice piece for casual Holmes fans . Fun to see Lestrade as a developed character interacting with notables of the late 19th century. The mystery itself would have been solved by Sherlock in a chapter or two. Trow is a very good voice actor.

Excellent storyline and fast moving that held me to the end. Trow is an excellent author and narrator.

Inspector Lestrade, as Trow depicts him as a resolute investigator, who does not allow Holmes to deflect him in his duties.

The end which I will not give away here. It was excellent right up to the very last word.
