Thoroughly enjoyable overview of the little known Thames Torso murders plaguing late Victorian London.What makes this a great read is the author really captures the atmosphere of the times,the same London that Jack the Ripper walked.After reading this I believe if it wasn't for the letters supposedly written by Jack the Ripper it would be the Torso Murderer we would be still discussing,to me its a far more interesting case than the Ripper and one that went on for years not a few months.

I found this book very interesting and intriguing. I have read lots of books on jack the ripper but this is the first book I've read about the torso murders, although I have heard of it. There's some interesting chapters in the book. But the whole book I found you just can't put down, not even to put the kettle on to make a cup of tea. ! A good read !

The author has put in lots and lots of research on this book. I really found it interesting, plus you can read a chapter at a time and not lose the thread of what you are reading. Knowing the parts of London discussed I found it fascinating finding out what happened there in the past. A good factual book.

I ordered this because I enjoy M J Trow's Mad Max books, and this was a chance to see how he addressed a non-fictional topic.

It has obviously been very thoroughly researched and is also very readable.

This book has encouraged me to explore more in this genre

I knew nothing whatsoever about this series of brutal murders until I read this book. The book is well researched and well written and, if you like true life crime stories...with a dash of mystery & the macabre...then this book is most definitely a "must read".

I found this book very difficult to get into.The first 20% is all about the history of the river,and the rest is very unclear and all over the place.I dint even bother to finish it.

It didn't hold my interest but that doesn't say that people maybe near the Thames won't find it interesting
