Euan MacPherson uncovers the Ripper
on 13 November 2005
I loved reading this excellent book which is very well written. It is so descriptive and readable and does not just tell a story but also paints a picture of life in the late 1800s and of Mr Bury. Euan MacPherson has got into the atmosphere of the time. I like it when a writer can use words in this way.
The book is set out in a very good way. William Bury's story is told in the first half. Then in the second half the Rippers modus operandi is compared with Bury's actions and words. This works very, very well.
There is more than enough information given in the book to back up Euan MacPherson's case. I appreciate the fact that we are not presented with all the printed information that is available on the Ripper. There has been so much written on the Ripper, some sensible and some just plainly ludicrous.
It was apleasure to read this book and I am sure I will read my copy a few more times.
I agree with Ms S Savage from Clevedon, Avon that Euan MacPherson presents a very convincing case for William Bury being Jack the Ripper.
