A comprehensive account of London's celebrated East End killer, revised and updated. The murders in London between 1888-91 attributed to Jack the Ripper constitute one of the most mysterious unsolved criminal cases. This story is the result of many years meticulous research. The author reassesses all the evidence and challenges everything we thought we knew about the Victorian serial killer and the vanished East End he terrorized.

Top 100 Tickets Reviewer

This book goes into extreme detail about the events leading up to the killings, the killings themselves and the aftermath. It also looks at the case from every different angle. What I found interesting about this book is the way the author presents the information. Not once does he try to force his opinion on the reader at any stage. He simply presents the hard facts to the reader and allows you to come to your own conclusion based on the evidence. It does not answer the question of who was Jack The Ripper like many books claim to do simply because its a mystery.

If you want to know all the facts about the story this is your book.

 Very well researched

Nearly all Ripper books want to sell themselves by letting us know once and for all who really "dunnit!!". Sugden gives us his opinion but that is not what the book relies upon. Instead he goes back to the original primary and secondary sources in order to build a comprehensive picture of what really took place. What is most surprising is how little concrete evidence there really is. This allows for a case to be built against whomever one likes, as has been done by countless other authors. It made for a very interesting read and makes a fantastic introduction to novices to the case and essential reading for those Ripper enthusiasts.
