Top Customer Reviews
Lady Kathryn and her husband, Sir Charles Sheridan, the Nick and Nora Charles of the Victorian era, are at it again. When Jennie Jerome Churchill finds herself being blackmailed, she realizes that this could have grave implications for her son, Winston Churchill, whose political future is at stake. It seems that these blackmail threats claim that there is proof that Winston's father, Randolph Churchill, was none other than Jack the Ripper.
Confiding in her friends, Lady Kathryn and Sir Charles, she seeks their assistance. What they discover is nothing short of tragic but it can never be made public, as the future of the monarchy is at stake, and there are those at the highest levels of government who will stop at nothing at keeping it so.
As always, there is a historical underpinning to the story, and the historical personages and events that are at its root are intertwined into the mystery at hand. The historical notes at the end of the book are most enjoyable, as they allow the reader to understand the reasoning and research that went into such inclusion.Read more ›
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.
