Overview

THE ULTIMATE COLD CASE From 1888 to 1891, London’s East End was rocked by a series of brutal murders. The victims were prostitutes whose corpses were left gruesomely mutilated. These crimes came to be known as the Whitechapel murders and were attributed to an unidentified fiend who named himself “Jack the Ripper”. The search for his true identity consumed an enormous amount of police resources and generated more than 1,600 pages of reports—but the case was never solved. Now, after 120 years of speculation and debate, this infamous serial homicide case is reexamined by a leading cold case investigator. Using modern investigation techniques and technology, author Robert A. Snow takes a fresh look at the mystery of the Whitechapel murders—and the serial killer who got away with his vicious crimes. The Ripper left nothing usable at the scene of his crimes and he came and went like a ghost. It is possible, even likely, that he was interviewed by the police at some time during the course of their investigations, but was able to allay their suspicions. Jack may have been insane, but he wasn’t stupid.

    Excellent Introductory Book

    I am a Ripperologist - I read everything I can find about Jack the Ripper and the murders in 1888. There are hundreds of books on the subject, but most of them are full of inaccuracies and untruths. This book is perfect for a beginner because it is very accurate,concise and the author has not inserted his personal theories or opinions. This book is not for those who already know alot about the Ripper because there is nothing new in it. But for everyone else, it is the perfect beginning. Well written, too!

    Highly Recommend - One of the best!

    I have read MANY books about Jack the Ripper. Some are way too wrapped up in the writer's pet theory about who Jack was and even twist or ignore the facts to promote their theory. There are only a few books about Jack the Ripper which are straight FACTS. I think that is what is most important to someone first reading about Jack. This book is great because the first half of the book details each murder - based on POLICE FILES and newspaper articles from the time. The second half is an explanation of MODERN police techniques which can be applied to each crime (from the author's PERSONAL EXPERIENCE AS A DETECTIVE) so that you can reach your own conclusions. If you want to learn the FACTS about Jack the Ripper, this is the book. Highly Recommended!

    Highly Recommended

    This is an excellent book about the Whitechapel murders. The author discuses in depth the facts about the murders, instead of choosing the
    probable murderer, he discusses the suspects and why these suspects could not have been the murderer. The book is well written.
