This is another very different "Jack the Ripper" book...As has been pointed out to me, it contains under 10 pages, (of a total of over 260), relating to the canonical five victims...this book is emphatically a study of the "forgotten victims", and not a rehash of all that's gone before.

It is measured, thorough, and both well researched and written...everything you might expect from the writers of CSI Whitechapel...and more besides...

As such, it is a masterpiece of it's kind...it reads easily and freely and yet is thoroughly referenced and well indexed...I hate to say it, (because I'm beginning to use the phrase more than I ought), but it's another "must buy" for the would-be Ripperologist and a serious "should-buy" for the Real Crime follower...I would urge it on any serious student...

So why have I not given it five stars? Well perhaps I ought to have, but for me it's a 4.5 or thereabouts...other books have thrilled me with their accuracy and fresh research...and got a five....other books have shocked me and forced me to rethink things from the beginning...and likewise got a five...some of these latter have perhaps been less factual than this one but have wowed me more...it's a tough decision - as a compromise I give this four, but thoroughly recommend any really serious student buys it and reads it at least twice!

Absolutely superb book. Extremely well researched and written. Gives a terrific amount of information to just how these unfortunate people lived died and in some cases, murdered. Highly recommend this book, I couldn't put it down.

The book is not the problem that's excellent, Paul Begg is an excellent world authority on Jack the Ripper who I can trust. It was the firm who sold me an 'Advance Uncorrected Page Proof' copy - that's clearly stated on the front cover but not in their sales write up! It's really a complete waste of my time and money.
