Notes

Limited edition of 100 copies, signed by author and artist on the limitation leaf. A roman a clef of the book trade, which blends bibliomystery and psychogeography with Ripperology. Raffish bookdealers in the pursuit of the ultimate Sherlock Holmes rarity collide across time with the final collapse into insanity of Sir William Gull, Queen Victoria's surgeon, "identified" by Stephen Knight in Jack the Ripper; The Final Solution as the knifeman on the Jack the Ripper team.
