Paperback. In 1888 Jack the Ripper made the headlines with a series of horrific murders. But most killers are not shadowy figures stalking the streets with a lust for blood - many are ordinary citizens driven to the ultimate crime by circumstance. This book examines all the known murders in London in 1888. Who were the victims? How did they live, and how did they die? Why did a husband batter his wife to death after she failed to get him a cup of tea? Who left the unidentified torso of a woman in the foundations of Scotland Yard? Why did teenage gang rivalry end in murder at Regent's Park? Just how dangerous was London in 1888? Illus., Prologue 1 January, 1888, Epilogue 31 December, 1888, Appendix, Bibliog. + Notes. 272pp. p/back. Nr. F.
