Synopsis: 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 has been pursuing the study of Jack the Ripper for longer than anyone else alive. As a young boy, he talked to old people who had lived through the Ripper's activities and were then still living in the East End. Richard spent thirty years as a journalist with Associated Newspapers (Daily Mail) and is a well-respected true crime writer. His previous books include Tales of Liverpool Murder, Mayhem and Mystery, The Bedside Book of Murder, The Great British Torso Mystery and Murder Files. He has also acted as 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.
