    Something of a misnomer while it arguably does provide the most essential information on the Ripper murders it's much less complete than several other books in my collection including one co authored by Begg my reason for buying this rather slim volume It would however be an excellent introduction to the topic and it is commendably up to date in its discussion of how the Ripper has become a legendary figure and one of the East

Discover the truth behind the myth in The Complete Jack the Ripper by Paul Begg and John Bennett Whitechapel 1988 a spate of brutal murders becomes the most notorious criminal episode in London's history The killer chillingly nicknamed 'The Whitechapel Murderer' 'Leather Apron' and most famously 'Jack the Ripper' is never brought to justice for the slaughter and mutilation of at least five women in the slums of East London But the mystery is deepened by a letter sent From Hell to Scotland Yard accompanied by half of a preserved human kidney In this comprehensive ac I ve always been fascinated with the Jack the Ripper case but have never done much reading beyond cursory examinations of the Wikipedia page on the tragedies The cover and overall form factor of this book seemed to me to hint at its being a rather sensationalized cheap depiction or portrayal of the case and so I was pleasantly surprised to find that this wasn t uite so The book is laid out in three useful sections the first details the events of each of the murders the second delves into the most prominent theories surrounding the killings and the identity of the killer and the third elaborates on elements of the Ripper mythology that have sprung up and traces their origins All in all the information presented here is rather straightforward and seemingly unbiased Particularly in the first section everything is stated very matter of factly with emphasis placed on the facts of the case versus interpretation That is saved for the second part where the authors very carefully assess the bevy of Ripper literature available today and over the past several decades Here the book really shines in its commentary on how people approach the problem of solving the murders and identifying the killer and how these various methods have at times grown out of the cultures and times in which they are deployedAll in all I was rather pleasantly surprised with the uality of this book and its analysis as well as its prose What I thought was going to be a fairly tawdry reading experience turned out to be uite informative and even thought provoking if not about Jack himself then about the culture and world in which he operated and which we all operate in today
