4.0 out of 5 stars A real "Jack the Ripper theory" Aug. 28 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I enjoy the novels that this husband and wife team write about the late Victorian era. What I like the most is the extensive research that they put in each book, as well as the real life characters from that time that they insert in major roles in each story. This book is no exception. It was a fascinating insight into the infamous Whitechapel murders, and a very plausible theory as to who committed the crimes. Kathryn and Charles are wonderful sleuths, and in this book we see a very innovative Kathryn do some undercover detective work. Unfortunately, I had figured out the murderer of the blackmailer early in the narrative, but that didn't take away from my enjoyment of the book. This is a fun series, and you'll find that you become strangely attached to these people as you read.

3.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't Finish It May 4 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The earlier books in the series that I've read I've certainly enjoyed. I didn't finish this one because I've read more reputable Ripper books (THE COMPLETE JACK THE RIPPER by Donald Rumbelow [1975] and THE COMPLETE HISTORY OF JACK THE RIPPER by Philip Sugden [revised 1995 edition]) than the one the authors read. Their use of Stephen Knight's version became too aggravating for me. I wish they'd done more research before writing this novel.
However, if you don't know much about Jack the Ripper, or you are more willing to overlook the plot than I am, you should find this an entertaining book. I did care enough about the subplot involving the Sheridans' housekeeper to dip into the last chapters to see how that turned out.

4.0 out of 5 stars Food for thought to criminologists Feb. 26 2000
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Ever wonder who Jack the Ripper was and why he committed his crimes? This latest opus by the husband and wife writing team known as Robin Paige is a must for anyone interested in unsolved mysteries of the past. The hero and heroine are engaging in their own right, but their solution to the mystery of Jack the Ripper is interesting and imminently possible. Charles and Kate are asked to do a favor for their friend Lady Churchill, mother of Winston. Their inquiry leads them to an altogether different mystery. The writers certainly do their homework on this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Victorian Mystery Feb. 29 2000
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Since so many fictional women detectives seem to be either a madcap Lucille Ball type detective, or a "I can't get any respect" Rodney Dangerfield type of detective, it was a sure pleasure to find a series where the heroine has brains, courage, a quick wit, and resourcefulness. Kathryn Ardleigh and her husband, Charles, are the main characters in this well-written, well-plotted Victorian series.
