Format: Paperback
Gruesome to a point of no return.This was the first book i ever read by michael slade and i've been hooked ever since. Taking you on a rollercoaster ride that you will be glad to get off, yet leaves you thirsty for more. Extremely disturbing (in the best possible way) who-dunnit
that leaves you with very little choice by the final chapters of who did do it. Loved it.

By A Customer on 16 Nov. 2003
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Michael Slade has done it again! Another fine example of the intellectual slasher novel. Ripper is a book that's not afraid to gross out the reader whilst at the same time carrying through a thought provoking and intelligent plot that requires all brain cells to be firing.
This offering from Slade has the Canadian Mounties facing a seemingly supernatural killer, with deep and disturbing roots in the past. Could it be that Inspector DeClerque is pitted against Jack the Ripper himself? Simultaneously writers of crime fiction are being killed off one-by-one whilst trapped on an island during a murder mystery weekend, accumulating in one of the best locked-room and whodunnit mysteries I've read.
Fast paced, graphic and very clever. Who could ask for more?

By Rich on 22 Dec. 2011
Format: Hardcover
Inspector DeClerq and his team investigate the murder of a notorious feminist, meanwhile a murder mystery weekend on an island with a history of occult practices, becomes a nightmare as the players start being bumped off for real.

As with the previous Slade novels, there is a decent plot here. However, the characters are so two-dimensional and unsympathetic it's hard to care about what happens to them. This is particularly unfortunate regarding those trapped on the island. Each murder is more extreme than the last but at times I found myself chuckling as it just becomes silly. An attempt is made to pay homage to John Dickson Carr, but you get the sense it's more for show rather than affection. Not an awful read and in some ways perversely entertaining but you can feel the gears grinding.

Alongside 'Headhunter' this is my own personal Slade favourite,a bizzare mix of literary genres,from Red Dragon to 'And then there were none'-Slade throws everything into the mix.Although his candidate for the actual Ripper has its pros and cons,I personally have heard more idiotic theories.
