  • This book tells the story of the Jack The Ripper killings in Whitechapel from the POV of a lot of different people.  Suspects, victims, witnesses.  Each have their own stories and connections woven into the tale.  The tone and settings give a vivid feel for Whitechapel of the time and the people that lived within it.  And then of course, he gives his own solution with one of the lesser known suspects.

    I am fascinated by The Ripper and have read many books, non fiction and fiction on the subject.  This one, I liked a lot because each person had their own story and place in an even bigger framework.  And the author is very good at putting all the players in a vast board.
