Would Sherlock Holmes be able to catch Jack the Ripper? Everyone knows the name of Sherlock Holmes - the fictional detective created by Arthur Conan Doyle with his superhuman powers of observation and unbeatable methodology for solving crimes. But could his 1800's philosophy really work in the modern world to solve genuine crimes? That's the very question that a real-life US-based private detective asked himself before embarking on the adventure of a lifetime by stepping into Holmes' shoes and using his mindset to solve real crimes. So effective was this method that he decided to turn his attention to the greatest set of crimes known in history - the brutal murders perpetrated by the criminal who came to be known as Jack the Ripper. The author, along with a team of three of the world's top forensic scientists and criminologists, Dr. Michael M. Baden, Dr. Cyril H. Wecht and Dr. Henry C. Lee, have convincingly solved the infamous Jack the Ripper murders of 1888 London - arguably the world's most talked-about unsolved murder mystery. But their true-life resolution of the case is presented here in the form of a Sherlock Holmes novel, painstakingly penned faithfully in the style of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. In it, the author - who actually used Holmes' methods to uncover the killers' identity - explains exactly how the crimes were committed and by whom, all in the form of a fast-paced thriller featuring the world's most beloved detective along with Dr. Watson, from whose point-of-view most of the tale is told. Once the reader has finally been clued in on the final solution, the murders are then revisited from the killers' perspective. The story opens in the year 2017 with the sealed box of Holmes' most controversial cases being opened by Watson's great grandson Jacob, and among those cases is that of London's Ripper murders that took place in what was then and has forever after been known as the "Autumn of Terror." Jacob is shocked to learn the true story, as well as the reasons Holmes deemed the case's explosive resolution too shocking and incendiary to have been revealed to the public in Victorian England and so to be sealed "entombed in a tin box" for 125 years, as were a number of other cases that are mentioned in some of Doyle's Holmes stories. Along the way, the actual facts of the case and the evidence that led Randy and his team to the real killer will be revealed to the reader through Holmes' investigative methods.

Jack the Ripper is not the only blood-soaked fiend at work in London.There are others.In the festering alleys of Whitechapel, a habitual murderer is at work slashing women of the night to death and mutilating their remains. As the body count rises, local and national newspapers heap scorn on the Metropolitan Police and their hapless commissioner, Sir Charles Warren.Gory descriptions of the victims' wounds are published, illustrated with images drawn as much from the artists' imaginations as from witness testimony. The vaunted Scotland Yard sleuths are helpless, and the murderer sends them taunting messages in blood red letters signed Saucy Jack.And what of Sherlock Holmes? Is the foremost private consulting detective in the world standing aloof as the capital of the Empire is paralyzed by the nameless terror stalking its streets?Here, for the first time, is my account of those dreadful days and nights in that blood-soaked autumn of 1888.John H Watson MD.

It's the autumn of 1890, and a spate of bombings has hit London. The newspapers are full of fevered speculation about anarchists, anti-monarchists and Fenians. But one man suspects an even more sinister hand behind the violence. Sherlock Holmes believes Professor Moriarty is orchestrating a nationwide campaign of terror, but to what end? At the same time, a bizarrely garbed figure has been spotted on the rooftops and in the grimy back alleys of the capital. He moves with the extraordinary agility of a latter-day Spring-heeled Jack. He possesses weaponry and armour of unprecedented sophistication. He is known only by the name Baron Cauchemar, and he appears to be a scourge of crime and villainy. But is this masked man truly the force for good that he seems? Is he connected somehow to the bombings?
