Product description


Long regarded as one of the 'fathers of modern Ripperology', Mr Whittington-Egan has many years' association with the subject and this long awaited expansion and update of his seminal work on Ripper literature has been much anticipated. In a field where there are many books constantly published, this is a must-have and necessary volume for the Ripper researcher, historian and enthusiast alike. It is a valuable and necessary guide to the published works in a subject that can perplex even the most informed of readers. Amberley have produced here a book that will fill a gap in Ripper publishing that only a writer of Mr Whittington-Egan's calibre could fill. This is not merely another Ripper volume - it is an investment for anyone with an interest, at whatever level, in the Whitechapel murders of 1888. (STEWART P. EVANS, author of The Ultimate Jack the Ripper)

Richard Whittington-Egan is one of the Grand Masters of 'Ripperology'. A long time commentator, not an innovator, as he himself has said, his new book, Jack the Ripper: The Definitive Casebook, is a masterly distillation of the facts and theories that have built up over the past half century. The public fascination with the Ripper shows no signs of abating and for anyone coming new to this subject or indeed, for the older Ripperologists who may have missed a theory or two, this book is an absolute must. (DON RUMBELOW, author of The Complete Jack the Ripper)

About the Author

Richard Whittington-Egan spent thirty years as a journalist with Associated Newspapers (Daily Mail) and is a well-respected true-crime writer. He has been pursuing the study of Jack the Ripper for longer than anyone else alive. As a boy, he talked to people who had lived through the Ripper's activities. He has also acted as a reader and adviser on crime books to Little, Brown and Penguin Books, and as a reviewer for The Times, the New York Times and the London Evening Standard among others. He lives in Great Malvern.
