I am an avid Jack the Ripper case follower. This book is hands down one of the best! Every book that has been published since 1889 has the same half dozen theories rehashed over and over again. Mr. Morris gives the case a new, plausable and entertaining view of what may have happend in the fall of 88'. I truely believe he and his father may have nailed it with this book, every other "suspect" we have researched through the years needs a shoe horn to fit a profile, that's not the case here. This book actually has a motive, and one as old as sexuality itself... infidelity, the same motive that has brought thousands to their end at the hands of a lover or the lover's partner. Kudos to the father and son team who researched this one with all the tenacity of a Quantico profiler. They even show you the evidence as it is and not molded to fit a theory as in the past. I did not realize that some of the evidence I have read about hundreds of times was manipulated by other writers by leaving out paragraphs of letters and even formal quotes by the investigators. Read this book and open up your mind to thrilling adventure.

Read this book in one evening could not put in down. Mr Morris and his father did a lot of research, answered all questions. Brilliant book, recommend to anyone interested in true crime. Loved it.

I have always been a huge fan of Jack the Ripper and have read many many Ripper books in my time. I always thought that Jack the Ripper was a man but after reading this book and the evidence that John Morris puts forward, I am now convinced that Jack the Ripper was a woman. I would highly recommend this book as not only is it a work of non-fiction on Jack the Ripper but it is a really enjoyable read also.

Wow! What a read. I've read everything (well almost everything) on Jack the Ripper but nothing really ticked all the boxes - until now. It was only after I finished reading Morris's incredible book that I realised that all the earlier books I read, failed to answer many of the questions that the Whitechapel murders pose. Morris and his father carried out a thorough investigation into the murders and gave plausible explanations for the clues ignored by everyone else. Was Lizzie Williams Jack the Ripper? Maybe. It's certainly possible for a whole bucketful of reasons. She fits the profile of women who we now know commit this type of crime and, married to a doctor, she could well have had the knowledge needed to perform the 'surgery' on those poor women; she definately had the motive. Now at last, the strange clues begin to make sense - the Ripper was a woman. It's the only explanation. For me, the mystery solved at last. Great story. A must read.

Intersting book, but very repeatative which makes it get slow and boring
