Written by two leading researchers on Jack the Ripper, this popular, in-depth study of the most renowned serial killer in history now comes in a new, smaller size.
Over 100 years have elapsed since what is believed to have been Jack the Ripper's final killing, yet hundreds of books, television programs, and films continue to be produced every year on the subject. Jack the Ripper transports readers back to the London of 1888 through CGI artwork and unique reconstructions of the Ripper's murders, created with pinpoint accuracy. These detailed and atmospheric crime-scene re-creations, supported by a fascinating, expertly researched text, give readers the most complete view to date of the gruesome homicides that shook Victorian society.
