Very Good Indeed,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The London of Jack the Ripper: Then and Now (Kindle Edition)
This was my first read on the subject and I was very glad I chose it.
It's not glamourous; it's not sensationalist. This book is a crystal-clear statement of the facts as they are known about these terrible crimes, and feature those all-important then-and-now photographs which illuminate and bring the past to life in a way so few other titles manage.
I have bought another JTR book and will soon see if it adds to the perception I have gained of this awful period in our history. That such crimes exist I'd be naive to deny or ignore. They were in no way palatable or exciting no matter who tells the story. I'm glad I chose this book as my first because it laid out the facts as they are known - by an experienced researcher - and helped my understanding.
I thank the authors for their diligent work and recommend the title to anyone else who would like a factual overview of this terrible period.
