About this title


Discover the theories and facts surrounding the Whitechapel murders in David Rumbelow's The Complete Jack the Ripper ... It is 1888 in London's Whitechapel district, where one by one a group of prostitutes are brutally murdered. Opium smoking Inspector Fred Abberline is called upon to investigate these horrific murders and through his visions track down and trap Jack the Ripper. David Rumbelow's casebook sets the crimes firmly in their historical setting, examines the evidence comprehensively and scrupulously, disposes of a number of theories and legends and relates the murder to popular literature and to later similar sex crimes. In addition he has had the advantage of access to some of Scotland Yard's most confidential papers.

About the Author:

Donald Rumbelow lectures on crime and London history and is a former chairman of the Crime Writers Association. He is a London Tourist Board Blue Badge Guide. He is married and has two children. Among his interests are travel, theatre, collecting books and the English Civil War.
