I say that with all good intentions. I don't read a lot of Canadian books, so the police procedural aspect had a lot of unfamiliar acronyms, but you will shortly get used to it.

This book was written for fans of gruesome, psychopathic mindsets. Both an homage to mystery writers and to the history of serial killing, Ripper is pretty amazing. Slade manages to make his bad guys over-the-top and irrationally evil, while simultaneously being believable and unpredictable. On the surface, the bad guys really are just ridiculous, but if you like the genre and like to be absorbed by a story, it is just fun.

The story line is like a serial-killer historical novel, which was both informative and interesting, combined with a modern day police procedural. It felt like reading something that you really shouldn't be allowed to read in today's overly offended society....and it was Canadian! I just loved it. If amazon would let me curse, I would, just to emphasize how fun this book was for me.

I already bought the next one in the series, and I am pretty excited about it.

NOTE: I did not read the previous three books in the series. This book was gifted to me, and I was assured that reading the previous novels was not necessary before picking this up. I have to say, I agree. There are allusions to the happenings in the previous novels, but you are not really lost or confused by the flashbacks. It does spoil the (assumed) surprise endings of the other books as far as prior events in some of the character's lives, but, again, I don't think it detracts from the merits of this book in and of itself.

The story was great,as most all of Michael Slade's books have been.lwas thrilled to find their was another novel by this author as it is not available as an e-book on Amazon.The only disappointment I had with the book was the front,and back cover were severely damaged,of course this did'nt affect being able to read it.

I read this in the late 1990s and thought it was good. I had terrible taste then. Sexist, racist trash.

lacki
I had a hard time following this writers style. Wasn't a easy book to read for me personally. I put it down 3/4 the way through

Another god mystery from Slade. The books are pretty raw, but story line Nd. Harassers are very good. The endings are certainly not predictable.

Believe me when I tell you that I'm looking at this book right now and the condition is PERFECT. I can't wait to read it!

I borrowed this book from my brother who has never read it still to this very day. At the time, I was looking for a good scare. I scanned his vast array of novels and found Ripper. After reading the back cover, it sounded psychotic. I started reading and was instantly drawn into the world of Slade. I was amazed by the crisp storytelling and couldn't help but wonder what a great film this book would make. It was dark, distrubing and cruel. Much like Seven my favorite movie. After reading this novel, I can honestly say I was afraid to sleep much less, look out the window. Purely haunting. I'm determined to find all of Slade's books. Although, I have a few, I still lack some. It's too bad most are no longer in print or extremely hard to find. I gave it four stars because, at times the story dragged some and seemed to be going nowhere, but then it would pick back up again in no time. The last couple chapters are the best in the book. Or better yet, the whole island trip was the greatest part. Lots of carnage and mystery. If you have the chance to read Ripper I advise you to pick it up & continue reading. It gets deeper and deeper with each coming chapter. I await the next book by Slade, it will be a killer!

If Agatha Christie and John Dickson Carr had a child together that child would be Michael Slade.

Ripper is the fourth in Michael Slade's incredible Special X series and it is just that; a tribute to Christie and Carr.

Special X is too busy investigating a series of gruesome murders to give a lot of attention of a gathering of the world's greatest mystery writers but, when the writers start getting murdered in impossible ways and by maniacal methods, the lone representative of the RCMP must try to survive long enough to discover the mystery of the Ripper.

Michael Slade, the best selling author of 11 Special X novels to date, crafted a mystery masterpiece with Ripper, a loving, blood soaked tribute to Christie's "And then there were none," and Carr's "The Three Coffins." Slade deals out this ever-twisting story like a three-card-Monte dealer; constantly daring you to solve the riddles, and then delighting in proving you wrong.

Diabolical, gruesome, twisted, and brilliant, Ripper is one for the record books.

Michael Slade has done it again.
