By Lawyeraau TOP 100 REVIEWER on March 11 2012
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is the fifth in a series of period mysteries written by a husband and wife team under a pseudonym. The books are well-written and well-researched, with the stories taking place in Victorian England. Replete with period detail and the social mores evocative of a bygone era, this is a series of historical mysteries that is well worth reading. The main characters are engaging, and with each passing book, the reader becomes more fully engaged with their lives. As with all cozy mysteries, it is not so much the mystery that is of import but the characters that revolve around the mystery. While the mystery is intriguing, it is simply the framework around which the characters evolve.

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.

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.

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.

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.
