Sheri's Recent Reviews

Excellent historical fiction with an edge-of-your-seat mystery. The story centers on Scotland Yard just after the time of Jack the Ripper.  The city is growing too fast for its own good, and the much-needed police force is not trusted because of their failure to solve the Ripper case - and now it looks like there may be another mass murderer surfacing.  With the help of early forensics techniques, our heroes must track down a twisted killer and keep the unappreciative public safe.

 
 
 
 

If you like dogs, you will LOVE this book. It's told from the viewpoint of a dog.  He believes he will be reincarnated as a human (he saw it on TV once) so he tries to act more human.  He wants to help his family with their problems, but he can only watch their trouble unfold and lament his lack of opposable thumbs.
