Adding more new material for his Complete History of Jack the Ripper, crime writer and historian Philip Sugden already has painstakingly uncovered much new and hitherto neglected material, including a new Ripper sighting, a possible earlier assault, and a potential American connection. As noted Ripperologist Dan Farson observes, "This is indeed the ‘definitive account'," for armchair sleuths of the White Chapel Horrors and all true crime aficionados. "A meticulous and reasoned profile for readers and future detectives."—Kirkus Reviews "The charm of well written history about a character of almost mythical standing."—Daily Telegraph (London)

A little dry in some parts but Sugden did a wonderful job working through all aspects of the case. He provided many interesting details and supported his argument well. Read full review
