it was ok

This book is a failure in terms of suspense, plausibility, and dialogue. Its satisfactory qualities are few, but they include an attractive title, a sensational theme, and creative manipulation of historical facts and characters. I'm interested in reading almost anything related to the Jack the Ripper case, but Cohen's wincing style undermines the effectiveness of her storytelling.
