The first couple of chapters give the sort of description of the Thames one might find in Jerome K Jerome. The writer then wastes no time on getting onto his favourite subject, Jack the Ripper. In the notes there are references to some of the books he has written on Jack which if you haven't read them might induce you to do so. At the start of the book there is a very helpful drawing of the Thames indicating where the body parts were found. The second half of the book was very good, but we are told very little about the Torso murders, simply because nothing is known about them and they were upstaged by Saucy Jack.
So I would recommend it as a valuable list of the body p0arts and where they were found (some in the foundations of Scotland Yard would you believe), but beyond that, the Thames Torso Murders are as big a mystery as ever. And it is one of only two books on the subject.
A sadly overlooked mystery. Just who was the Torso murderer? We have plenty candidates for Jack, but who was this guy?
It has obviously been very thoroughly researched and is also very readable.
This book has encouraged me to explore more in this genre
