Paul Begg and John Bennett

The Complete and Essential Jack the Ripper

Penguin (November 2013)

In this comprehensive account of the Whitechapel murders, leading crime historian, Paul Begg, establishes all the essential and verifiable information available on the case, and explores the myth of Jack the Ripper in literature, theatre, film and in our culture. His meticulous research illuminates the desperate physical and social conditions in the East End during the 1880s, ideal for the killer’s purposes. He details the real lives of the murdered women, and why they were selected to be victims; examines the evidence against the known suspects; and assesses the opinions of senior policemen at the time on the killer’s identity.
