Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Begg ( Into Thin Air ) takes a scholarly approach to the ``Ripper'' murders, offering a substantive account of the five gruesome slayings committed in Whitechapel, London, in 1888. The author sets the stage by examining London at that time--especially its slums--and discussing the careers of the police officials concerned with the Ripper case. Launching into an analysis of the five murders, he demonstrates how circulation battles among metropolitan newspapers spurred wild conjectures and misstatements of fact about the killings. The deduction of some doctors--that the killer was a skilled anatomist--is inconclusive, Begg contends. He also argues against the popular belief that the Ripper was a gentleman gone slumming. Begg concludes by assessing the most frequently suspected murderers, providing persuasive evidence that none was guilty. Photos. (Jan.)
Library Journal
For the last 100 years, criminologists and investigative journalists have scoured every conceivable document hoping to discover a missing piece of this murderous puzzle. Begg's well-detailed and footnoted account provides some new information and a few new photographs, but also leaves out established material. He provides only brief coverage of the Ripper letters that, although probably not written by the killer, are still interesting to read and a part of the case. Begg rounds up the usual suspects but does not claim to know the killer's exact identity. He does, however, state that the evidence strongly suggests a particular man. An extra plus is Begg's capsulization of Martin Fido's recent theory that Jack was a Polish tailor named David Cohen. Now that murder stories are best sellers, try circulating this with McGinniss and Wambaugh. Well done.--Michael Rogers, ``Library Journal''
