The dark prince rises

5 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 28-09-18

I wanted to judge this book as a standalone being my first by Joe Hill and apart from a couple tip of the hat to Stephen King it is a excellent listen , the character development and build up are spot on and as the action begins you are hooked and it becomes a stop everything and listen until the end

Matthew's narration is a equal to the story bringing out the style of the individuals and matching the pace of the story

Step Aside pretenders , the Prince of horror stands beside the throne

Talk to me Brucie

What can I say , have spent a couple of day driving round with Bruce as my co-pilot and I'm on my second listen in a unheard of back to back session, he's kept it light no in depth analysis or recriminations but informative and entertaining, also he changes subjects with the smoothness of his performances, don't know if it will do the treble but will defo get many more listens.
What we need now is Bruce to read Lord iffy boatrace to us

Nothing New

If you have read the first book don't waste your credit, think twice if you haven't,
Patricia Cornwall brings a reasonable argument for sickert being the author of the ripper letters but not the. Identity of the ripper himself , as John Douglas ( the founding head of the fbi behavioral science unit whom Benton Wesley , Jack Crawford and criminal minds Gideon is based on) asserts it is unlikely that a compulsive killer would quit and go back to a normal life , more likely he (the overwhelming majority are male) is apprehended and institutionalised , dies or moves on to new pastures , neither Sickert or Bruce Robinson's Maybrick Do this after the final murder , more likely that Sickert was the dear boss writer as he would have had plenty of access to the crime scenes/autopsy in the free for all that was east end London at the time.
