9781445617688: Jack the Ripper: The Definitive Casebook

The case of Jack the Ripper and his savage serial killing and horrendous mutilation of five women in the East End of Victorian London is the greatest of all unsolved murder mysteries. For over 100 years the long line of candidates for the bloodstained laurels of Jack the Ripper has been paraded before us. Policemen and Ripperologists have tried in vain to put a name to the faceless silent killer. Richard Whittington-Egan, one of the founding fathers of the search, published, in 1975, his Casebook on Jack the Ripper, now eagerly sought but long out of print and virtually unobtainable (except at mammoth prices), in which he documented the history, the crimes, the investigations and the investigators. He also included some fundamentally new discoveries and points, such as the real story of the kidney in Mr Lusk's renal post-bag, wrongly said to be that of Catherine Eddowes (Ripper Victim No. 4). The endless nightmare of Jack the Ripper has rolled on, unstoppable, and now Richard Whittington-Egan, in a completely revised and very considerably enlarged edition of the 1975 Casebook, has taken a new look, from a longer perspective, at the theories and the personages who advanced them, from the time of the murders right up to the present day.

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.

Review:

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
