Review of The Conan Doyle Notes: The Secret of Jack the Ripper

07 Mar

“Diane Gilbert Madsen has given readers another winner in the DD McGill Literati Mystery Series. The Conan Doyle Notes: The Secret of Jack the Ripper is a marvelous tale of DD McGill who is an investigator for insurance fraud and her bookseller friend, Tom Joyce, who is asked to assess the value of the literary estate of a wealthy Chicago estate owner. McGill immediately alienates herself from those associated with the estate and Tom experiences a nasty fall down a flight of stairs. Even though the police believe the fall to be an accident, McGill is convinced it was an attempted murder. In a move to gather evidence illegally, McGill is discovered and arrested. Her antics don’t end there as Tom convinces her to become even more involved in the estate owner’s diary, which has now mysteriously disappeared.
McGill’s personality is so lovable that any reader will immediately forgive her illegal activities in the name of justice. And Tom’s persistence in pursuing clues that might lead to the identity of Jack the Ripper is nothing short of pathological but in a charming way! The secret to the mystery just might lie in long-lost notes taken by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Neither McGill nor Tom will rest until things are set straight. The Conan Doyle Notes: The Secret of Jack the Ripper is a great mystery read by itself but Madsen’s characterizations make the reader bound and determined to make this a one-sitting reading experience. This one has it all: a stalker, attempted murder, murder and a fire that threatens to undermine the two sleuths’ abilities to solve their own mystery.”
