Softcover. Within the pages of this book are hundreds of individuals who have at one time or another come under suspicion of being Jack the Ripper. Their involvement coming about by them having committed or attempting to commit a Ripper-style murder. Some by confessing to being Jack the Ripper while suffering from mental illness or while under the influence of alcohol. Others have been linked to Jack the Ripper by the press, the police and by contemporary and recent theorists. The killer eluded apprehension despite the best efforts of the police, who in an era before modern day fingerprinting, DNA forensics, surveillance cameras and criminal profiling, were simply out of their depth in hunting what was then a new phenomenon, but which today has become all too commonplace. "The serial killer." The investigation was hampered by a barrage of false confessions and the police faced a hostile press and an angry public clamouring for swift justice. Taunting letters using the moniker "Jack the Ripper" were reportedly sent by the killer. Hope of a successful conviction relied almost entirely upon catching the perpetrator in the act. 474pp. trade size softcover. As New. A fairly heavy book which may require additional postage if shipped overseas.
