Summary, etc.: "Physician Arthur Conan Doyle takes a break from his practice to assist London police in tracking down Jack the Ripper"--
Reviews

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2018 September #2
    Holmesians dream the scene. It's 1888 London, and the police beg the detective's help in ending the Jack the Ripper murders. With Holmes on the case, we'd be in for some deductive dazzlement. Instead, Harper imagines Arthur Conan Doyle himself answering the call. Doyle insists that Dr. Joseph Bell, his teacher and the model for Holmes, be called in from his hospital post in Edinburgh, and we hear a delightfully familiar voice. We are dealing with a man . . . most likely not physically intimidating . . . probably at or below average height. They enlist another historical personage, left-wing reporter and novelist Margaret Harkness, as a guide through the reeking neighborhood. What follows is yards above the usual pastiche, told in flowing language that could almost be sung: Her accent declared an Irish heritage, and her age appeared to be around twenty-five. Holmes' fans will appreciate the glimpses, amid the action and the examination of social mores, of the elements that formed their hero. Here's Oscar Wilde advising Doyle on what some think is the key to the Great Detective: Write about justice. Copyright 2018 Booklist Reviews.
