Blood Legacy

Rated 5.00/5 based on 2 reviews
Who is Jack the Ripper?

Most of us know the dark figure in a long coat and top hat, with a black medical bag clutched in one hand and a razor-sharp surgical knife in the other. We can all imagine this madman stalking the dirty back alleys and fog-shrouded streets of Whitechapel, searching for his next victim.

What we can’t imagine is what history has left out . . . More

Review by: William Todd Rose on Jan. 17, 2012 :
I'll admit I've been a fan of Hose's work for quite some time and Blood Legacy is a perfect example of why that is. Taking us from the fog-enshrouded streets of the 1800s Whitechapel District to a sanitarium in 1958, the author adds his own twist on Ripper lore… which can be a tricky undertaking. In the hands of a lesser wordsmith there is always the chance that fictional elements added to historical facts could come across as contrived and hokey. Hose, however, masterfully pulls off this feat in a manner that is as believable as believable as it is well written.

Review by: RJ Parker on Jan. 17, 2012 :
Blood Legacy by Author Carl Hose is a book written about the most prolific serial killer in history, Jack the Ripper. But it`s not simply another book written about the Ripper. The author adapted a story from one medium (true crime) and made it work in another (fiction). This had to be a daunting task, and a great amount of work researching serial killers. I found myself amazed at the creativity of this fine book. An excellent storyline; well-written with a lot of surprises. This is a must read! - RJ Parker is the author of seven serial killer books.
