Review by aadyer
A very good summary of the case, with a lot of modern theories summarised nicely. The CGI reconstructions of the crime scenes, maps, & contemporary illustrations serve to highlight various parts of the text. A very good final chapter highlights no specific suspect but does cover all the major theories. Very good. Concise, but helpful to both the amateur & professional "ripperologist"
