Many will be familiar with the story of Jack the Ripper, and the story is very well covered in one of the chapters of this book. Many will be aware that the east end had always been an area mired in crime and poverty, and yet, books devoted solely to Jack very rarely mention anything else of the areas criminal history. Mr Oldridge's book elegantly puts this to right, with six other very well written chapters covering crimes committed between 1874 and 1911. The reader is kept engrossed in the seven true stories featured, not only because of the subject matter, but also because of the author's excellent writing style, where usual writer's cliches are avoided. In addition to this, the book is very well illustrated with photographs, drawings and maps, including some which are previously unpublished anywhere else.
A truly wonderful book, which I do not hesitate in recommending to anyone interested in the fascinating history of crime in the east end of London.
She is very interested in Jack The Ripper and the whole White chapel area ,she was very appreciative of this book as a birthday gift and looks forward to more works by this author.
