The grisly serial killings of prostitutes and vulnerable women in Victorian Whitechapel, dubbed by the popular press as the work of Jack the Ripper are the talk of London, and from deep within the smog-ridden slums, yet another piercing shriek is heard.
Sherlock Holmes and Dr John H. Watson are drawn into one of the darkest plots ever to shake the foundations of England. There are freemasons, conspiracies and plots at the highest level of the establishment.
But for Holmes, there is a uniquely personal element to this new and terrifying case
This full-cast audio drama is brought to life with eerily engrossing sound design and a brand new, cinematic music score.
Nicholas Briggs (Sherlock Holmes), Richard Earl (Dr John H. Watson), India Fisher (Katherine Mead), Lex Shrapnel (Netley), Samuel Clemens (The Stranger), Matt Addis (Sir William Gull), Ian Brooker (Assistant Commissioner Anderson), Beth Chalmers (Mrs Hudson), David Peart (Lord Salisbury), John Banks (Saunders).

Holmes and Watson investigate the Ripper Murders in this Entertaining story.
After a slow start the story takes off and if a fun and enjoyable listen. A large cast with India excelling in her roll as usual, Briggs's Holmes seem slightly over acted but is still a likable character. The sound is wonderful and captures olden days white chapel very well.
Would have to recommend this story and am looking forward to the next Holmes story.
