Containing some photographs and Home Office documents which have previously not been released, this work collates all known official records and includes important contemporary information, to investigate the identity of the Victorian serial killer, Jack the Ripper.Reseña del editor:
Every Jack the Ripper book ever written has been based largely on the mass of witness statements, police reports and other documentation contained in the Scotland Yard files and now lodged at the Public Record Office. The extensive files contain the evidence from which any theory must start in the search for the identity of the Whitechapel murderer. In a mass of detailed accounts they contain the facts of the greatest unsolved crime in history - a case which has generated more conflicting solutions than any other.
Two experienced Ripperologists have for the first time applied their joint knowledge and expertise to the painstaking collation of all the known official records, supplemented by important contemporary information including press reports, to produce the ultimate Ripper book - a narrative account of the murders containing all the known evidence.
In more than a century, there has never been a book on the Whitechapel murders like this one. Years spent sifting and culling this difficult material and long hours transcribing barely legible Victorian handwriting has resulted in the most complete work on the subject ever published - the ultimate companion to the Jack the Ripper murders.
Hitherto only available to dedicated researchers prepared to travel to Kew and spend hours examining microfiches, all the relevant and known facts on the murders are now accessible in this authoritative book, presented in appealing narrative form for the general public and true crime fans everywhere.
