Summary (From the publisher):

In the late seventies an extraordinary document came to light which for fifty years had been held on deposit by the bankers of the deceased John Herbert Watson MD - better known to devotees of Conan Doyle as Dr Watson. Its contents were a continuous narrative in the doctor's own hand. His story opens in the East End of London in 1888. Three women have been savagely murdered - at knife point - by Jack the Ripper. To calm the public outcry, Scotland Yard approaches London's most eminent detective, Sherlock Holmes, and asks him to investigate the mystery. As Watson faithfully follows the master, recording each trace of the ghastly outrage, the identity of London's most celebrated criminal comes irrefutably into focus.
