As the title states, this book contains a number of cases relating to unsolved murders in Victorian and Edwardian London. The accounts are very short (5 or 6 pages each) and do not go in to a lot of detail. It's who was murdered and details of why (if!) anyone got arrested and why they were not charged. It does not go in to any details of who else could have been responsible for the crimes and the reasons why.
There are pictures too but these don't make much sense - Eliza Hubbard was murdered in 1838 and was found stabbed to death in her bedroom. The picture that accompanies the story is a random picture of Epping Forest taken in 1910 as she and her husband were reported previously seen `quarrelling here'. In 1839 Robert Westwood was found murdered in his rooms in Prince Street, Soho. Yet the photo shows a shot of Prince Street taken in 2006!
Not very satisfying and it has left more questions than answers. A couple of the stories would be good for further investigation - as in the style of the books Mr Briggs' Hat or The Suspicions of Mr Whicher.

An interesting and informative book. An in depth look at some of the crimes that defied investigators of that time and which gives food for thought to modern day enthusiasts.
