This little book's author doesn't introduce any new `Rippers' into the mix or even attempt to identify who the real Jack the Ripper might be. What he does do, besides profiling all of Jack's victims and recounting their inquests, etc. (100 pgs.); is present a rogues gallery of the better known suspects and some of those who aren't quite so popular (30 pgs.). In addition he identifies and discusses an extensive number of books, films, comics and television productions --- both fictional and non-fictional --- which have taken Jack the Ripper as their subject either directly or indirectly (24 pgs.).
This, then, isn't a book for the dedicated and knowledgeable `Ripperologist,' who likely will find the first 100 pages to be rather boring, but one which should certainly be of interest to any neophyte new to the subject and seeking to get his feet wet.
