What can be said about Jack the Ripper that hasn’t been said already? Every aspect of the elusive killer’s crimes have been covered in one way or another, whether it be through books, TV shows, moves or documentaries. We’ve all heard of the hundreds of theories regarding his identity. We’ve heard of the suspicions around how many deaths he was truly responsible for. We’ve even heard of the outlandish suggestions of his connections to black magic and occult rituals. What else is there left to cover?
Fortunately, author M.J. Trow covers the Ripper case from an angle which hasn’t already been done to death. Ripper Hunter: Abberline And The Whitechapel Murders details the Ripper investigation as it was carried out by lead investigator Frederick Abberline.
