Wicked Beyond Belief: The Hunt for the Yorkshire Ripperby Michael Bilton
For over twenty years, the dark secrets of the biggest criminal manhunt in British history have remained a closed book -- until now. Wicked Beyond Belief is a powerful indictment of the calamitous investigation that logged over two million manhours of police work; its revelation of crucial new evidence relating to Peter Sutcliffe's meticulously planned killing methods caused headlines in the newspapers ('Mad, bad -- or both?'); and it argues convincingly that Sutcliffe's crimes were far more extensive than hitherto admitted. With exclusive access to the detectives involved, to pathologist's archives and the Home Office's own top secret Byford Report into the police handling of the case, the story of the hunt reads as tensely as any thriller.
