Review: The American Murders of Jack the Ripper

  • The American Murders of Jack the Ripper by R. Michael Gordon
  • Hardcover: 240 pages
  • Publisher: Praeger (October 30, 2003)
  • ISBN-10: 027598155X

  • I saw a special on a cable network about the possible american murders of Jack the Ripper a month or so ago that I found very interesting.  Then I found this book and found it even more so.
    Of course, like everything, it is all speculation but it does seem to have a lot of validity as a theory.  Certainly the murder of Carrie Brown.
    And of course the suspect, Klosowski was a favorite of Abberline among others.  And the timing fits.  The switch to poisoning is a major area for possible diagreements of course.  WOULD a serial killer switch methodology that much? Lots of food for thought here if you enjoy Ripper theories though.
