It is something that had to happen at some point and it is nice to see so many titles embracing the format of the Kindle, but what is it, who can use it, and what titles are available for the Ripperologist?

A Kindle is an e-book reader, and is a software, hardware and network platform developed by Amazon.com for the rendering and display of e-books and various other forms of digital media.  

A Kindle allows the reader to bookmark, highlight, and look up references whilst reading, and notes can be added to the content.  Readers can also search through synonyms and definitions via a built in dictionary.  It is also possible to save a page as a clipping or a text file for future use.

Kindle’s can be purchased from Amazon, but if you don’t wish to purchase a Kindle, you can download Kindle Software to your home computer or laptop so that you can view these books.  The best thing is, these downloads are free and legal and work on most, if not all, operating systems.

    The book ,’The great Victorian Mystery”,also printed as,’The Nun of Calais’,A fiction built around the Ripper murders,was published by Arlington Books,in 1972.The author was Peter Menegus.He claims a solution of the Ripper case.I have not read the book,hearing of it only a few days ago,from an article in an overseas newspaper.I had not heard of the book previously,perhaps the titles were misleading.From what I did read,it seems to centre around a poor girl from Campden Town,presumably,’The Nun Of Calais’,I’ll send the paper cutting if you email me with an address.

    Mike … Thanks for including my book, WHISPERS IN THE WIND - THE SEARCH FOR JACK THE RIPPER, in your listing of novels. I had a lot of fun doing the research for it and writing it. Love the Victorian era. Hoping to visit Great Britain in the near future. Meanwhile, I’ll check out some of the other titles you listed. I love to read.
