A Study in Crimson

A Study in Crimson by Robert J. Harris is the perfect mystery for fans of Basil Rathbone’s onscreen portrayal of Sherlock Holmes. Just as the classic movies did, A Study in Crimson sets Holmes and Watson in 1940s London, this time on the trail of a Jack the Ripper-inspired killer who uses the nightly wartime blackouts to terrorize London. Scotland Yard needs Holmes to sift through the aura of legend that surrounds this latest killer and find out if he is in fact a descendant of the notorious Ripper, or simply a gruesome copycat.
