The Worst Street in London by Fiona Rule, 12 May 2009
I loved this book. Well done Fiona for writing in a very straight forward but fascinating way. I am not a Ripperologist or whatever they are called, but I do live in London and I am fascinated by our heritage and the history of some of the most famous streets. What started out as a quick flick through and back cover read, turned into one of those rivoting books that you just get so wound in to. If I had a penny for every time I said, " I never knew that!", then I would be a very wealthy man for sure. Fiona tells the story as if she is sitting in a pub opposite from you, and quietly, over a pint of Pride, whispers the gorey details of times gone by. Take a cab home, that's for sure!
