"An account by someone who was there, was at least a witness to the scenes of the murders and was potentially the perpetrator of the Jack the Ripper murders...a text that will no doubt be debated for years to come" (Alan Hicken)
"This is the autobiography of a man who claims that for a few short weeks when he was a young man he killed several women in Whitechapel. It is either a genuine confession by Jack the Ripper, or it's an extraordinary novel. Or it is something else, but what? Only you can decide" (Paul Begg)
"Whether it is truly real or not, that doesn't affect the engaging read that Carnac provides. We'll let you make your own mind up" (entertainment-focus.com)
"As “Ripperature” it is not only important, but it is also unique" (John Bennett Ripperologist magazine)
"Intricate and creepy" (Daily Express)

The book, for me, started slow, with not a lot of interest in the first chapter of James Carnac's life. Nevertheless, to feed my progressive and almost unquenchable thirst for knowledge on the Jack the Ripper case and an all devouring interest for the various theories to do with the man's identity. This book scared me as to how accurate the details of the case were, and how I would imagine I would see the world in his perspective.
It is reasonably debatable on the subject on the authenticity of this manuscript as actually belonging to the man who killed the canoical five (And possibly others) during the Autumn of terror in 1888, though there is no debate from me that this is a fantastic page-turner and, for all those who are interested in the Jack the Ripper case (and all those who read for that matter), it is worth considering a read; it may enhance or remould your idea of who the infamous killer was. Overall, it was definitely worth a read.
