    1. Behind Closed Doors by Brian L. Porter is another of the author’s suspense-charged mystery novels, taking us to London at the turn of the century during Jack the Ripper’s reign of terror.

    2. I have to admit I debated between a three and a four on this book, the story seemed to be a bit slow in places, but all in all it is a good mystery. In 1888 in London, the police had a lot on their mind because Jack the ripper was on the loose and getting all the attention. Behind the scenes other things were happening including first one dead girl found on the underground train and then another and another. Luckily Albert Norris is put on the case and won;t stop until the killer is found.This i [...]

    3. Having read a few books by this author, I was drawn into this novel just as much as the others. Brian L. Porter is a master at creating atmosphere & setting the scene in whichever era he writes about and this Victorian detective story is a real treasure. The storyline runs through a time when Jack the Ripper trod the streets of London, picking out his unfortunate victims & these facts are never far from one's mind as we are led into a murder investigation by Inspector Norris and his team [...]

    5. Behind Closed Doors – Review by Martha A. Cheves, Author of Stir, Laugh, Repeat and Think With Your Taste Buds - Desserts“ ‘Men have met their maker as a result of the greed and avarice of those who would turn the people of this fair city into denizens of the underground world. Be warned that their deaths will be avenged.’ It’s true that a number of workers were killed in accidents, mostly cave-in, during the excavations of the original, and some of the newer tunnels. This could be val [...]

    7. I received a reader's copy of this book in exchange for a honest review.Think of Victorian London and one image immediately comes to mind, a serial killer known to the populace as Jack the Ripper haunting fog-shrouded Whitechapel, slaughtering prostitutes with impunity. What you don't know, what you couldn't know until now, is that another killer was loose in that great city at that very same time. Enter Brian L. Porter, Ripper expert, author of A Study in Red, and writer/producer of the upcomin [...]

    8. Behind Closed Doors is an old fashioned "Who Done It" book. It is a mystery set in the late 1880's in London. The Ripper murders are in progress, as it were, and most of the resources of the police are centered on the Ripper. But simultaneously there is one, then two, then three murders that occur which Norris and Hillman must solve, mostly by themselves. Detective Inspector Bert Norris and his "chum" Sgt. Hillman, are assigned to the case. But their hands are tied by their boss. They cannot, as [...]

    10. A Plausible Connection between the Underground Murders and Jack the Ripper.Behind Closed Doors, by Brian L. Porter, is a plot that lets the reader feel all the frustration of Inspector Albert Norris.
