This brief story is one of the first tales I ever finished. Written in 1975, it's my own small contribution to the canon of Sherlock Holmes stories. It's a character study more than anything else, fully contained within Holmes' flat at 22b Baker Street. For those interested, I suspect that it was also inspired by a marvellous BBC series on Jack the Ripper, that saw the Detectives Barlow and Watt from "Z Cars", and "Softly, Softly", analyse the ripper murders.
And you'll get to learn who the Ripper was. At least I saw it back then.
A young woman was murdered thirty-six year ago. While cleaning out the evidence locker in the basement of the sheriff's office,there was clothing that they could now tested for DNA.
There was DNA and it matched the defendant's.
Now a jury must consider and decide.
