Hello folks....

May I suggest perusing some if not all of these books,which deal as you can see with the Whitechapel Murders.........

1. Paul Begg's "The Definitive History"

2. Stewart Evans' "Letters from Hell"

3. Phil Sugden's "Complete History of JTR" [ Jack The Ripper ].

Most people enjoy fiction works [ as I do myself,but primarily from the Victorian Period ] but if you do get the opportunity, one or all of these books will be very enjoyable reads.

None of these tomes,as you may have surmised,deal with a "suspect-based" theme. There are countless facts within these books which will be of interest to anyone interested in crime and criminal history.

Thank you for your time.
