Casebook Review:

Sherlock Holmes meets Jack the Ripper, again, but this book is better than most. It was written with great attention to Holmesian detail, and with great affection for the hero. Alas, Hanna revives the monarchy theory. It's a shame that with his talent for re-creating Victorian London, Hanna couldn't have created a new plot. I give it a four for good writing, but only a two for plot...does that average a three?
