Item description for Jack the Ripper: Crime Archive by Val Horsler...
Jack the Ripper, the late-Victorian killer who brought terror to London's Whitechapel, still prowls our imaginations today. His victims were all female prostitutes; most had their throats cut and were gruesomely butchered. The case unleashed an avalanche of letters claiming responsibility for the murders, but the Ripper's identity was never established despite the best efforts of Scotland Yard. This bloody history cuts through the speculation by presenting the key facts in their full horror, backed by hard evidence from the National Archives. Original police reports, witness statements and letters bearing the chilling signature 'Jack the Ripper' combine with a compelling narrative to tell the story behind the legend.
