Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson are back – this time to try and catch the Ripper. Only a few short years ago the monster known as Jack the Ripper held the East End of London in a grip of terror. Now there are rumours that the Ripper has returned.
Three respectable young women have been slaughtered in Mayfair, the city’s most respectable and exclusive district. But instead of consulting Sherlock Holmes, the official police prefer to seek advice from Dr. Karl Schermann. And while the flamboyant German enjoys official approval and public acclaim, Holmes sits at home, brooding.
But when another woman is murdered, Holmes decides to take matters into his own hands. Before Holmes can bring the Mayfair murderer to justice, however, he must uncover the truth about Dr. Karl Schermann…
Can Holmes and his faithful sidekick Dr Watson unmask the killer?
Or will the Ripper once again slip away into obscurity…?
