This is one of the best books on the History the Whitechapel Murders that I have ever read. If you are interested in Jack the Ripper. This is the book for you. The author is a historian and you can tell how much research and knowledge went into this book. I also like that this book did not take a stance on who was the killer. So many Jack the Ripper books make a case for who the author “thinks” was the killer. I like that this book, instead, focuses on the Whitechapel Murders. It gives lots of detailed information not only on the Murders themselves, the victims, the suspects but also on the Whitechapel district of London but the socio-economic times that the murders took place in.

Many people are fascinated by Jack the Ripper. There are so many tv shows, movies, etc. about the serial killer. If people really want to know more about the case, I would sugget this book.
