Numerous books, films, and articles on this famous case have appeared. No one was ever caught, or at least officially brought to trial, for the crimes.

Jack the Ripper: A Reference Guide is the only book to list all the real-life people (victims, suspects, witnesses, police, doctors, etc.) in categorical, easy-to-view style without adding irrelevant or extraneous information. There is no supposition or guesswork. Also included is an extensive, detailed bibliography that is not otherwise available in print.

This book is a valuable reference guide which will be an extremely useful addition in public libraries, and informative to those whose knowledge and interest in the subject ranges from the casual to the most experienced and dedicated.

About the Author:

Scott Palmer is a freelance writer who specializes in the cinema in Great Britain.

From Library Journal:

Palmer states up front that this book "is primarily concerned with listing the known facts" and "not designed to draw conclusions as to his [Jack's] identity." The author presents the information in eight short, succinct chapters identifying the victims, witnesses, suspects, police, etc. Palmer's most daring claim is that according to his own past experiences with autopsies, the killer absolutely possessed some anatomical knowledge?a major point of debate among "Ripperologists." He also utilizes his firsthand knowledge as a Freemason to correct errors made by previous investigators regarding Masonic rituals. Beyond that, however, Palmer breaks no new ground. Although the book does fulfill its intended purpose, many other available titles, such as Paul Begg's Jack the Ripper: The Uncensored Facts (LJ 12/15/89), offer more for a lower price. The lack of photographs is also lamentable. Not recommended.?Michael Rogers, "Library Journal"
