    David Stuart Davies latest addition to Titan s Further Adventures of Sherlock Holmes series is a ripper, pun completely intended.Sherlock Holmes is asked to investigate the kidnapping of a child This is no ordinary kidnapping, as he discovers when Mycroft becomes involved Some old enemies return and there are some new ones All well written and well rounded.Sherlockians will recognize the pl...

    1.5I m literally feeling a bit heartbroken over my rating of this David Stuart Davies is my go to for Holmes pastiches His stuff is generally in character, his stories are interesting, and I like the way he writes However, all the things that I love about him were gone in this book The plot is promising and intriguing, but there were too many things wrong than write.First, the characterization.Sherlock wasn t Sherlock John felt pretty okay, because he can be easy to grasp you just have to downplay the reason and play up the gut instinct, so not that hard But, the main guy Not right at all I wasn t convinced by it.Second, the plot.So, from the title, you can easily deduce that the book is going to be about Jack the Ripper in some way Not that hard However, it just took my least favorite theory the only way I liked it was in a specific movie, where they did a really good job with it outside of that, nope and ran with it When I realized where they were going, my face completely fell because I thought that it was going to go somewhere unique It didn t Third, and lastly, the way it was told.Basically, it had multiple POVs It ranged from John s diary, Sherlock s perspective, the kidnapper s perspective, and random other perspectives that I didn t need Each time I got to a new chapter, it was just likeAnd, I don t like that So, sadly, this really didn t work for me What a shame, but I m still going to keep an eye out for his stuff One miss among the fe...

    I tend to like the Further Adventures series but this one was kind of like Sherlock Holmes Paint by the Numbers Davies captures the feel of Conan Doyle but the actual mystery is threadbare and the Ripper is nothing than title click bait.

    I ve read all of Titan Books Further Adventures of Sherlock Holmes series of novels, including the three other books David Stuart Davies authored for the line I m bringing this up because I think my feelings about The Ripper Legacy are related to how many Sherlock Holmes sequels by other hands I ve read I found myself disappointed by The Ripper Legacy not just as a novel but specifically as a Sherlock Holmes novel First of all, the novel is partially extracts from Dr Watson s papers, as is traditional in this kind of thing Strangely, though, every second chapter is just straight prose with a third person omniscient narrator who takes us to places of which Watson and sometimes Holmes have no knowledge That s not a grave sin, but think about it for a moment one of the basic joys of Sherlock Holmes stories is usually following Dr Watson s description of the case Holmes is a faster thinker than Watson, but Watson stands in for the audience I know there are some Doyle stories narrated by Holmes, but there it s only a slight shift to following Holmes as he pieces together the case In The Ripper Legacy, on the other hand, we see people and events that illuminate the mystery before Holmes and Watson know anything about them But then, that s probabl...

    This book was a goodreads win Very enjoyable fast paced read Very much written in the style of Conan Doyle Would certainly read of these books.

    Spoilers I m giving this Four stars simply because I have the same problem with this story as I do with Horowitz s Moriarty ie, the plot twist seems like cheap writing to me However, the overall story is so much better than Moriarty that I can forgive Davies easier and I have to admit Davies handles it the best I ve seen.I mostly didn t mind the changing points of views except for times when a cliff hanger ended in one POV and then the next chapter backtracks to explain the cliffhanger in another POV Other than that, I thought it was handled well.There were a few times when I felt that certain words or descriptions didn t feel era appropriate, but mostly it was good There were definitely nods to BBC s Sherlock throughout the book, which depending on how you feel about the series could either be found humorous or annoying.Mycroft was the character I had the most problems with He was too active He popped up too many places and ...

    The story is entertaining however the title is misleading, don t expect Jack the ripper to appear the mention of him is very vague The problem with the book is that Holmes is simply NOT Holmes, I find this very disappointing w...

    This was okay but it had almost nothing to do with Jack the Ripper I am sick of being suckered into reading something that supposedly has a strong Jack the Ripper connection in it and finding out it doesn t I...

    Definitely one of those, it s not you it s me, kind of ratings I just could not get into this book I m way to much of a Sherlock fan and way to invested in Jack the Ripper to believe the unbelievable things in this book ...
