It is plain to see that Yvonne Mason knows crime. A graduate in Criminal Justice and a licensed bounty hunter, you can tell all the research that went into writing this book. She takes the infamous events of Whitechapel in 1888 and puts a interesting spin on the legend of Jack the Ripper. This book reads like one of those movies I used to watch as a kid from International Pictures or even the old Hammer Films of the ’60’s. Kudos to Yvonne for writing a story with well thought out characters and mixing in real-life historical references to make this novel a treat. The ending has just enough mystery to keep you guessing long after you finished it.

The Mad Hatter took over four years to complete. It was very important that the history of 1888 in Whitechapel be correct. I even purchased maps of Whitechapel in that time period. I purchased books on clothing, furniture,mercury poisoning, tanning, hats, money, the hat factory that was on the Thames, bridges and behavior- as well as many other details. I download photos of buildings of that time period, and I also went back to the research I had done when I was in College on Jack the Ripper. I basically drove myself nuts to make sure that the setting was as it should be for 1888 in the East End of London. Apparently it paid off. This reviewer understood what I was trying to do.
It was totally worth all of the rewrites the sleepless nights and the hair pulling to get it right.
