A terrific book,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Burton and Swinburne In The Strange Affair of Spring Heeled Jack (Kindle Edition)
Read 'A Red Sun Also Rises' before I read this book. Have to say I found it a slow starter but once I got past the first couple of chapters I raced through it like there was no tomorrow.
I like the way Mark Hodder puts forward various arguments for instance politics and religion and does it very well, but the action is brilliant. I couldn't wait to turn the page to see what mischief Burton and Swynburn got up to in the pursuit of Spring Heeled Jack.
What Mark Hodder has done with his two main characters is enlarged on their personalities and then given them an alternative life story to fit his very steam punk theme.
An excellent book that deserved to win the Philip K Dick award..
