One of the benefits of the Kindle is that you don’t always see the book cover, which in this case features a vampiric looking man with goatee, top hat, and eye liner on!  That said this little offering by Vickie Britton is a nice read which I would recommend to any beginners wishing to quickly dip their toes into the mystery.  The book features chapters on the victims, locations, Macnaghten’s suspects, other likely suspects, suspects ruled out a the Ripper, the Investigation, the Ripper letters, the theories, suspects later proposed, and a brief look at Jack the Ripper in Fact and Fiction.  My only problem with the book, other than the length, is that much of the material seems to be nothing more than the opinion of Wikipedia articles.  There are no new debates, no new facts as uncovered by the dilligent researchers that post on the message boards, and it seems as though the author has chose to play it safe rather than investigate further. As mentioned earlier the book is very brief, running at 42 pages which includes contents, list of websites, and selection of books for further reading.

    My name is Gabe and I am a little boy. I looked up a book in the john beck library. It is called amazing mysteries unsolved crimes. and I turned to page 10 and 11. it said Terror on the streets. and the news says: The autumn fog swirled over the cobbles and alleys of Victorian London. Gas lamps hissed and flickered in the damp darkness. Suddenly, a blood-curdling scream filled the night. Victorian serial killer: Fear was spreading through the streets of London. Could it be another murder? Over four monthes in 1888, five women in Whitechapel in the East End of London were attacked by the same vicious killer. Newspapers gave the murderer the name “jack the ripper.” and that is what the page says. I do not know if this mystery is ever going to be solved or not. this is the amazing mysterie ever. Have a nice day Gabe.
