A gripping sequel to say the least.  With the identity of The Ripper still unknown, the author throws out tantalizing hints and creative plot twists, capturing the mood and emotions of everyone involved.  Fast paced action, engaging characters; a tale replete with the sights and sounds of London; it's vibrancy and it's decadence.  I was taken in once again by Mr. Southworth's grasp of the facts and his creative touch on one of the more ghoulish murder sprees London has ever experienced.  Another ...more

For me this has to be one of the most hotly anticipated releases this year. Rob likes to tease us readers and keep us waiting but it’s worth it. Rob’s never given me anything other than a 5* book previously and he’s done it again.

What I’ve always really enjoyed about Rob’s work is that I’ve been there from the first book and I can really see how he’s grown. Don’t get me wrong.. I never found fault with any of his books but this one just seems a step above the last as he continues to rattle out f

The first book was excellent but t

Anyone who has followed any of my reviews knows that I am a fan first and foremost of characters. Don't get me wrong... I love a good story, because, well, that's the point of a book. But story can easily fall second fiddle to a well-written character. A good character can carry any story. Robert Southworth has written a good tale full of characters that I have grown to care about. Even if the book had been a laundry list of a mundane life, I would have kept reading if only to remain close to th ...more
