Softcover POD. Taken from the Introduction : 'More than one hundred years after the unidentified killer ended his crime wave interest in his story remains immense. Strong enough to merit numerous walking tours around Londonís East End, plus a well-trodden museum popular with tourists and locals alike. Public interest in him has, if anything, grown over time rather than faded into the fog of our memories. Hundreds of books have been published on his actions, many seeking to provide the definitive truth about who the killer was, from a member of the Royal Family to aristocrat, wealthy industrialist and on to common cutthroat. A catalog of films exists about him. For example, that master of the mysterious and High Priest of Horror, Alfred Hitchcock, based his early 1927 piece, The Lodger: A Story of a London Fog, on the Ripper story. Inside youíll read about Jack the Ripper: The Stuff of Nightmares or the Sweetest Dreams? The Covetous Suspect; A Suspect of Convenience; The Aristocratic Connection; Murders A Plenty; The Forgotten Ones; The Making of a Murderer and much more! Documentaries, magazine articles and so forth are still written. This book, we hope, will be different to most. It is not going to try to name the killer; to do so would be mere speculation. Instead, we will cover the major aspects of his actions and try to identify the reasons behind them. We will consider some of the most common suspects, and one or two of the less well-known ones. Who knows, by the law of averages and the millions of hours that have been put in by authors, investigators and criminal historians across the globe, there is a fair chance we may hit upon the culprit.' With several small Illus. + Further Reading. 213pp. p/back. As New with no creasing to covers.
