Not one for tear jerkers, I cried in the end I loved the sci fi and historical combination of the plot There is action and intellect, and invokes thinking about time travel changing the future. This was probably the worst book I have ever read, and I once read a book about killer seagulls In addition to the ridiculous plot and the horrible writing, this author commits some of the worst abuses I have ever seen inflicted upon the noble semi colon in a published work of fiction I only wish that Good Reads allowed a zero star rating. I absolutely loved this book Although it did start off a little slow in the beginning, it s all worth it in the end I m not going to write a long review about what I loved in this book, because I enjoyed everything I love a good book that can make you cry, although I did want an extremely happy ending the ending given will always stay in your heart I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves a good mystery, romance, or even a historical background. My wife and I both thought this one was outstanding A story of a group who travels through time to Whitechapel, London during the time of the Jack the Ripper murders They try to find the killer The time and place was well written and the story is a thrill a minute I could not put this one down until it was finished. Better than expected Took me 3 years to finally read it and I m glad I did I love this Virginia Bakerthan makes up for the occasional confusing passage with her outstanding word craft I have never read anything so emotionally compelling I wept along with the characters both real and fictional.This story will stay with me forever.If you want to be pulled into a story, this will do it Warning there are some places you won t want to go to, and some people you won t want to go anywhere near. This book, for me, started off on shaky ground Time travelers going back in time to when the Jack the Ripper crimes took place in London to try to find and bring back a rogue physicist from the 21st century before he changes history forever Far fetched.It also didn t help that the heroine is an uber feminist who chafes at the constraints put on women in Victorian society And some of the quips made me roll my eyes Wait until you get the Internet, she says Ugh.The way the book is written a This book, for me, started off on shaky ground Time travelers going back in time to when the Jack the

a bit of getting used to It s very choppy, jumping from character to character I didn t really get into it until about halfway through the book And I think the author was trying too hard some of her descriptions and metaphors are much too heavy Frankly, if I had to read the phrase singing in his blood or any variation on that theme onetime, I was going to scream.The story was just intriguing enough to make me continue, especially in the early part of the book when there were so many eye rolling moments I sometimes wanted to quit It picked up about halfway through the book for me, the saving grace was the character of Jonas Robb He was a very complex character that finds himself intimately involved with the time travelers and in too deep, not understanding what s going on but compelled to help anyway.Not a great book, but a decent read But don t expect to getfrom it than a little bit of distraction It s not THAT good *Download Pdf ↴ Jack Knife ☟ For Inspector Jonas Robb, each night brings new terror But this night is different It s brought two strangers David and Sara who have arrived in London seemingly with no past What they do have is incredible knowledge about the Whitechapel fiend known as Jack the Ripper Because David and Sara do have a past It just happens to be in the futureSent back in time, they re in pursuit of a st century madman whose purpose is to change history As the body count rises, Sara and David realize that their quarry and Robb s have become linked in a way that threatens not only Victorian London, but the very fabric of time Jack Knife, by Virginia Baker a Writers of the Future grand prize winner for Rachel s Wedding , is an entertaining but familiar twist on the Jack the Ripper mystery, which has gotten a lot of play in the

entertaining but familiar twist on the Jack the Ripper mystery, which has gotten a lot of play in the SF and fantasy field, with TV shows like Star Trek and Babylon 5 making use of it, and writers as varied as Robert Bloch, Harlan Elllison, Alan Moore and Karl Alexander using it for fictional fodder Like Alexander whose book Time After Time was adapted to film , Baker makes use of time travel in her novel, resulting in something both formulaic and original The formulaic part comes in the premise two time travelers, Sara Grant and David Eliot Americans both are hot on the trail of time traveling, continuum changing rogue Jonathan Avery The rogue is none other than the scientist who invented the time traveling machine Miffed because he wasn t chosen to be the first time traveler fellow scientist Grant got that honor , Avery violates protocol, commits an act of violence that takes someone s life, and heads back in time Special Ops Agent Eliot accompanies Grant back to the late 19th Century to capture Avery before he can do something to seriously alter the future Once they arrive in London, the pair discovers Avery may be linked to the Ripper murders in White Chapel That s the hackneyed, derivative part and it s a lot of Baker s debut What elevates the tale to the level of an entertaining, worth at least one read, novel is Baker s sure handedness in drawing scenes and creating characters from 19th Century London, as well as offering up obscure facts and suspects in the age old mystery that still fascinates most everyone Good fun One has to enjoy time travel themed books to get into the plot of this book I ve always been a sucker for them thanks to Wrinkle in Time and am always one to try a book like this out I fell easily into the plot and would have read it sooner had my social life not been so fantastic PI definitely recommend this book as it was an excellent twist on the Jack the Ripper story and hadmany unforeseen occurrences that kept me in suspense and avidly interested.
