In spite of what most Ripperologists will tell you (we all have our own fav candidates and aren't slow to tell people about them), the true identity of Jack The Ripper has never definitively been ascertained. Of course, most well-written and researched books about the ripper manage to persuade you that their pet candidate is the real killer but few enthrall, challenge and entertain the reader like this one does. Considering what a dirty world it is we live in (JFK and the Lee Harvey Oswold myth for instance) I feel there is every chance that much of the story told here could be true. Forget about the retraction by Joseph Gorman (or Sickert) of this story - people do a lot of strange things when put under pressure and he may well have simply 'had enough' of the hassle and thought that was the best way to 'make the media circus stop'.

Reading this, Sir William Gull makes for the perfect ripper psychologically. Not only was he a Physician (with extensive medical knowledge) but as a number of chilling recollections from his life prove, he was an avid supporter of vivisection and was capable of extreme acts of cruelty. Throw the spanner of 'Freemasonry', the espionage of a 'secret society' and the ominously convenient association of some of England's most powerful people to Sir William into the pot and you have a thrill a minute read.

We know already that Walter Sickert was a man seemingly obsessed with the ripper murders and we also know what a talented man he was artistically - whether he was also a brilliant (and lucky) story teller is for each of you to decide.

True or not - for those interested in the Whitechapel murders - 'The Final Solution' is a must buy book in my opinion.

I absolutely love this book! I re-read it at least once a year. Is it 'The Final Solution' to the Ripper mystery? Probably not. I read somewhere that Stephen Knight himself more or less admitted as much shortly before his untimely death. But until Jack the Ripper is definitively identified, this theory, extreme as it is, is at least as valid as any other. It is shocking to me the way that this book and Stephen Knight himself has been attacked by Ripper "experts" who then go on to present their own unsubstantiated theories as fact - and until proven, they are all just theories, for better or worse. So how can I enjoy this book so much if I am not convinced of its authenticity? Well, it has charm. It tells of romance, escape, a great vision of an artists colony and the atmosphere of a dark and dangerous East End. As a stand-alone story it makes for a great read, and the "Ripperoligists" who so enthusiastically denounce it as damaging should remember it is the popularity of this theory that sparked the imagination of the public and kept their theories profitable!

Probably the best book written on the subject ! The mystery is solved at last... I urge everyone to read other books from this author who died too soon... does that have anything to do with what he discovered??? I let you think about it...

Having been told an extraordinary tale, knight did the job of a first rate journalist, & investigated the claims. There seems no agenda to his work, & he appears to let the evidence uncovered, either corroborate or disprove the story. The ordering of the chapters works very well, & the writing quality is high. Hearing Knight speaking about this work, he seems the most level headed & sane person I've ever heard discussing the ripper case. The claims in this book are truly extraordinary, as is his courage in publishing it. For the story in this book to be true, fact really would have to be stranger than fiction.

Firstly I have to state that I do not hold the author of this book responsible for the laughable garbage contained within its cover. He was duped in the same way that Ernest Parke had been in the latter part of the nineteenth century over the Cleveland Street scandal in which the establishment cleverly fed him misinformation in order to undermine his case against the Earl of Euston.

The same clever ploy has been used again to silence any hint of masonic cover up with respect to the 'Jack the Ripper' criminal investigation and unfortunately poor Mr Knight fell for it to his everlasting shame. Can you believe that the Duke of Clarence was involved in these murders when he wasn't even in the country at the time and he was viewed as little more than a retard but his own father and grandmother? Can you believe that Dr Gull, who was over 70 at the time and had recently suffered a series of strokes, was able to carry out these brutual murders? And can you believe the word of the illegitimate offspring of Walter Sickert who first put him in the frame and then later withdrew his accusation?

I have read dozens of Ripper books over the decades and this is by far the most laughable, and that is saying something. If you want to get closer to the truth then please try reading the excellent They All Love Jack by Bruce Robinson. Quite frankly this book is just a waste of time!

The Final Solution has got to be one of the best if not the best Jack The Ripper book I have read, the book had me gripped from start to finish. In my opinion the evidence which is put forward in this book is a lot more plausible than any i've seen previously, Stephen's book is both we'll researched and well written and gives the reader an incentive to keep on reading.
If nothing else this book is a superb read and a must for anyone who likes a good conspiracy and the theory could well turn out to be "The Final Solution"
