The gruesome, unsolved murders by the first media-sensationalised serial killer, Jack the Ripper, continued to fascinate us after more than a hundred years. However, from the beginning, the truth has been obscured by a fog of half-truths and misinterpretations. Jack the Ripper: An Encyclopaedia clears up half a century of misinformation and myth.

Jack the Ripper - an Encyclopaedia Summary

Jack the Ripper - an Encyclopaedia by John J. Eddleston

The author uses a critical case review of the kind that is now used to scrutinise unsolved crimes.

The book includes: - Descriptions of the locations where the bodies were found. - Detailed histories of the victims - Profiles of key police officials and examinations of police proceedures, investigations, blunders and errors - Detailed of prevailing myths about the case - A meticulous evaluation of all the chief suspects - Comprehensive analysis of the exisiting litertaure - Discussions of written communications ostensibly sent by the Ripper - A closely reasoned and well-supported argument identifying the most likely suspect. Maps, illustrations, a chronology, an introduction, a bibliography and an index complete this comprehensive reference to a notorious chapter in British criminal history.
