A terrific book on the Jack The Ripper case! As a collector of True Crime, as well as Criminology & Forensic Text-books (many from college, as I have a B.A. in Criminology & Forensic Psychology) I've found that this particular volume is a '1 stop shop' for all thongs Ripper. Case files, crime scene photos, autopsy reports, profiles, it's all here. Other than Donald Rumbelow's (to whom this book is dedicated to) "The Complete Jack The Ripper" from 1975, thois is the besty Ripper book that I feel one can get their hands on! I'm happy to have it in my library!

The authors explain and descibe things well, but they don't tell the reader what to believe. The reading was a challenge because of the language of the day, but I quickly learned I didn't want to skip one single word. A marvelous experience!
