Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

A brutal murder has occurred in the hopelessly aristocratic town of Fenton, Massachusetts. Making matters worse, it falls on the twenty-first anniversary of another murder; one that was never solved, and which bred a shameful, unspoken legend - that it was committed by none other than Jack the Ripper, having moved to Fenton following his infamous London Spree. More afraid of the legend becoming public and hurting property values than of the killer living among them, the citizens endeavor to ignore the whole mess. Their sheriff, however, has grown disgusted by the town's absurd sense of decorum since returning from the grim realities of the First World War, and begins a very public investigation. But when the evidence suggests that the legend is less absurd than he thought, and as the killings continue, the Sheriff finds himself fighting to save the same town he set out to humiliate. www.SonoftheRipper.com

A bookstore employee recommended this to me, which I usually take as pretty high praise, and I was not disappointed.

Son of the Ripper!, set in an uptight Massachusetts town in the 1920s has a very old-fashioned sensibility. It's highly mannered, and incredibly charming. Sure, the mystery is engaging, and there were more than a handful of laugh-out-loud moments, but the overall tone is just so rosy and pleasant, none of that seems to matter.

When everything is neatly wrapped up in the final pages, I turned each page with a sinking sense of dread that it was about to be over, and I was left hoping for this to become a series.
