4.0 out of 5 stars Intriguing book 31 Mar 2013
By S
Interesting read. I think if jack the ripper was killing now .he would definitely be caught with modern technology . I've read many books ,watched the film's and documentaries and I'd say jack the ripper was doctor .t. ,the American quack doctor. They should do a film about him, he was a odd character. He hated women , and he fits the bill of a serial killer. I'd definitely put him at the top of the suspect list!!!

Really thought there would be more to this than there was. I have read full books that cost less than this and were better.

5.0 out of 5 stars hard to review 21 May 2012

first of my friend and mentor john douglas i sadly have to say i disagree with him. but only because in my opinion jack the ripper was never caught and was never a questioned suspect. i think it our ego that we think we are smarter than the police of that age. but of the book it is a geat example of profiling and the criminal mind and as such is very good but as a who is jack i at least say read more and form your own opinion. in examining the person that might be jack it gives the fundamentals of how to analyse in looking at the case itself i think the problem lies in the police of the time never had evidence enough. could they have matched the body part in the box with the body and then finger printed and hairs of killer and matched them to suspecs maybe things would be different jack is the one case in history that even brakes profiing which makes it worth studing from all angles and all opinions

Never have I been so intrigued by the research and dedication of one mans exploration as I have with John Douglas. I have been investigating the Ripper for over 40 years, and I must say, impressive. Anyone who claims to know the Ripper cases and has not read this gem has done him or herself a grave disservice. This will be among my top research tools in my personal library. Kudos Mr. Douglas.
