5th sentence, 74th page: You said yourself it was assumed that Strangling Stan died in the fighting, thus ending the persecution of Kabul’s fallen women.
Sherlock Holmes is on the case of Jack the Ripper, and you’ll never guess who the villain truly is!
As soon as I discovered that there was a Sherlock Holmes tale about Jack the Ripper, I was kind of excited. After all, Sherlock Holmes is an amazing storyline and character. And he always catches the bad guy. So I knew there would be a new version as to just who Jack the Ripper was. The answer to that was not what I expected in the slightest. But it was oh so good.
My biggest complaint about this short story was that it was far too short. I was expecting a strong adventure with a little bit of action. It really wasn’t like that. But, it worked brilliantly, most of this tale is Holmes explaining how he figured out just who the true villain is… and it makes you kind of wish that Sherlock was actually a real person…
