Format: Mass Market Paperback
In spite of what most Ripperologists will tell you (we all have our own fav candidates and aren't slow to tell people about them), the true identity of Jack The Ripper has never definitively been ascertained. Of course, most well-written and researched books about the ripper manage to persuade you that their pet candidate is the real killer but few enthrall, challenge and entertain the reader like this one does. Considering what a dirty world it is we live in (JFK and the Lee Harvey Oswold myth for instance) I feel there is every chance that much of the story told here could be true. Forget about the retraction by Joseph Gorman (or Sickert) of this story - people do a lot of strange things when put under pressure and he may well have simply 'had enough' of the hassle and thought that was the best way to 'make the media circus stop'.

Reading this, Sir William Gull makes for the perfect ripper psychologically. Not only was he a Physician (with extensive medical knowledge) but as a number of chilling recollections from his life prove, he was an avid supporter of vivisection and was capable of extreme acts of cruelty. Throw the spanner of 'Freemasonry', the espionage of a 'secret society' and the ominously convenient association of some of England's most powerful people to Sir William into the pot and you have a thrill a minute read.

We know already that Walter Sickert was a man seemingly obsessed with the ripper murders and we also know what a talented man he was artistically - whether he was also a brilliant (and lucky) story teller is for each of you to decide.

True or not - for those interested in the Whitechapel murders - 'The Final Solution' is a must buy book in my opinion.

I absolutely love this book! I re-read it at least once a year. Is it 'The Final Solution' to the Ripper mystery? Probably not. I read somewhere that Stephen Knight himself more or less admitted as much shortly before his untimely death. But until Jack the Ripper is definitively identified, this theory, extreme as it is, is at least as valid as any other. It is shocking to me the way that this book and Stephen Knight himself has been attacked by Ripper "experts" who then go on to present their own unsubstantiated theories as fact - and until proven, they are all just theories, for better or worse. So how can I enjoy this book so much if I am not convinced of its authenticity? Well, it has charm. It tells of romance, escape, a great vision of an artists colony and the atmosphere of a dark and dangerous East End. As a stand-alone story it makes for a great read, and the "Ripperoligists" who so enthusiastically denounce it as damaging should remember it is the popularity of this theory that sparked the imagination of the public and kept their theories profitable!

Probably the best book written on the subject ! The mystery is solved at last... I urge everyone to read other books from this author who died too soon... does that have anything to do with what he discovered??? I let you think about it...

This was the first JtR book I bought. It was a very good read and being a novice I totally bought the theory. Now as I have read more on the subject and researched myself I have to say that it is full of errors and is a case of picking and choosing facts and circumstances to go with his theory.
If you are looking for a factual account and a credible theory on the identity of JtR this is not the book for you. This book has been ripped apart piece by piece by other credible authors.
If you are looking for a good read and wish to round out a JtR collection then I would buy this.

The Final Solution has got to be one of the best if not the best Jack The Ripper book I have read, the book had me gripped from start to finish. In my opinion the evidence which is put forward in this book is a lot more plausible than any i've seen previously, Stephen's book is both we'll researched and well written and gives the reader an incentive to keep on reading.
If nothing else this book is a superb read and a must for anyone who likes a good conspiracy and the theory could well turn out to be "The Final Solution"

Facinating theroy, It'll having you thinking. There are some slightly strangely reached conclusions. I remember when the book first came out the 'establishment' were quick to dismiss it as nonsence, which can only make you think there might be something in it. If nothing else this book is an excellent read.
