Both novices and hardcore “Ripperologists” will appreciate Alexander Kennedy’s fresh, insightful take on history’s most iconic killer. "One day men will look back and say I gave birth to the twentieth century" - Jack the Ripper Interesting points: • The Ripper’s taunting correspondence with police—and the possibility that it was a hoax. • The role of Queen Victoria in the Ripper investigation. • How the Ripper murders led to the birth of “profiling.” • The tragic histories of the Ripper’s victims. • The evidence for and against each of the prime suspects in the murders. • Famous men accused of the Ripper murders, including Lewis Carroll, Arthur Conan Doyle, and Prince Albert Victor. • Modern day investigations into the killings by mystery author Patricia Cornwell and others. What did I like? The above list of points was interesting. I don’t have the burning desire to solve the case or even to read everything that has ever been written but this was sent to me from the author to review and I did find how he approached the case intriguing. I have read other accounts from different authors but this was really a different approach. I find that I liked it! What will you like? If you could say without sounding off, you will find this a refreshing look at one of the most wanted and horrific killers of his time. You actually see the research that the author did. I think that most authors that I have read in the past were more interested in the actual killings and not the real dirt about the women and the work that the police did at the time to try to find the killer. Then he even takes it a step further in comparing the different approaches that others have taken, including the FBI. It’s odd, there have been more horrific killers in the past but I guess the fact that the Ripper got away with it is the draw that keeps bringing more attention to just this one guy! Or did he get away with it???? Some of the accounts that are included in this version lead us into another direction that I really would like to feel is the actual truth. He didn’t get away with it, he was caught and punished but just not for these killings. If he was punished for something or even if it was a mental breakdown! So long as it was some type of punishment, that would suit me fine!!!!!!

What did I think of it: 5 stars While I did know a little bit already about the Jack the Ripper case going into this book , there was some stuff I didn't know and was 100% new to me, with that said here is some of the new stuff that I learned: 1: one of the famous men accused to be Jack The Ripper was Lewis Carroll, author of Alice in Wonderland 2: Criminal profiling - only came about in the course of the search of Jack the Ripper by a Dr. Thomas Bond a police surgeon, 3: a hundred years later another profiler John E. Douglas examined the case though the lenses of the now commonly applied aspects as victimology , medical reports , and crime scene analysis before arriving at a detailed profile in his 1988 report and that it was not all that different from Dr. Bond's in some regards, with that said to found out more you have to go and pick up the book yourself to read.

    An interesting book, but nothing new presented here. If you're just getting into the material this book is a great way to get familiar with the more well-known bits of Ripper lore, but it fails to get into anything truly in-depth.

    Quick synopsis of Jack the Ripper: the crimes that were committed, the men it might have been, how London reacted, etc. It does not go in depth on anything, but is great if you a looking for a quick overview.
