The Whitechapel Ripper Must be StoppedA madman on the loose, driven by dark urges and uncontrollable violence. A hero, lost in the grip of addiction. The greatest and most desperate criminal investigation in history.Who will save us from Jack the Ripper? The most terrifying, explicit, and realistic Sherlock Holmes story ever told.  Whitechapel: The Final Stand of Sherlock Holmes provides readers a rare look at the lives of the victims, the monster known as Jack the Ripper, and the characters of Arthur Conan Doyle's beloved stories. All are presented in a fresh and entirely new way. A entirely new realistic way.Readers familiar with the Holmes stories will be shocked (and in some cases upset) with these new characterizations, but take heed as Gerard Lestrade transforms from doddering simpleton into an actual living and breathing detective assigned to the worst slum imaginable. They will be captivated by the reality of Holmes' addiction to cocaine and morphine. They will find themselves walking the cobblestone streets of Whitechapel, wondering if Bloody Jack's blade might be aimed at their throats next. Be warned: The book contains graphic content, including scenes of violence, sex, profanity, and realistic depictions of life in the East End where the Ripper killings actually occurred. However, the graphic content is not presented in a lurid manner, but rather as a more honest representation of what actually happened, and the way things truly were.  The author has released a Gentleman's Edition of the book that does not contain graphic content, however it is still not suitable for children.
