    Colourful and clear introduction to the Whitechapel murders. It covers the context (East End life, police, politics) before dealing with the five classic murders attributed to Jack the Ripper - and some of the other killings linked to him. The book sells itself on the computer generated images of the crime scenes (no ghoulish bodies, just the buildings), which are atmospheric and interesting but should not distract from the quality of the main information, which is authoritative and carefully presented. Thankfully free of wacky theories about motive or suspects (these are deal with on a single page near the end) this book is as one of the best summaries of the case in years.

    A fine addition to your Jack the Ripper collection.the text is clear and concise but the illustrations of the crime scenes are truly stunning.from someone who has over 30 books on the subject this is a highly recommended book.

    This is about as good an introduction to the Jack the Ripper case as you're ever going to see. Written by two of the foremost experts on the Whitechapel Murders, it is not only satisfyingly complete, but beautifully laid out.This is not a "suspect" book. In fact it scrupulously steers clear of advancing any particular suspect, and I feel is all the better for that...What it actually comprises is an exceptionally clear account of not only the murders themselves and the investigations, but also a whole mass of pertinent and helpful background information to the area, the times, and their mores and customs.With regard to presentation, to use an old cliche and say that it is lavishly illustrated, would in this case be something of an understatement...not only is there a positive wealth of photographic images, there is a whole collection of especially commissioned and highly atmospheric illustrations by Jaako Luukanen. The overall effect is...well...stunning.Personally I'm always suspicious of five star reviews, but I award this book such an accolade without the slightest hesitation. I'd honestly suggest that if you only ever buy one book about the Whitechapel Murders, then make it this one...I'm pretty sure you won't regret it

    Fantastic for beginners. Great visual reference for anyone I wish they'd been a book like this when I was just getting into the case over twenty years ago !! They's so much work done on the theories. So many reference materials on the facts. But nothing I have found with maps clearly showing the positions of key players and locations in the case as well as information like times and names etc Shown so graphically and clear Beautifully rendered cgi of locations helps take the reader see what some of the places would have looked like. I was really pleased with this book and it cleared up a lot for me about the geography . I really wish I'd read this book before visiting whitechapel for the first time last Week. I'd have substituted this book for my guide on the walk in a heartbeat !!! It' tells you enough about the victims and suspects to whet your appetite but this isn't a bad thing. It doesn't overload the readers mind with everything at once. They's lots of books to explore specifics further . Well worth the price.
