Just finished Ripper, the Lone Star title about the infamous serial killer's fictitous son. It's a bit of a lengthy read. I did find it a little slow in the beginning. Well, maybe not slow so much as hard to get into. Towards the end, the pacing picked up and it began to seem much more like a murder mystery than the spy novel it started out to be. The author threw in a little steampunk, which was cool. And i'll admit the ending caught me by surprise, so i won't give that away. Not bad, but truth be told, i enjoyed Patricia Cornwall's non-fiction book on the possibilities of the killer's true identity more.
