"In 1888, London was terrorized by a mysterious man with a knife. Between the end of August and beginning of November, this man committed five known murders--possibly more. Then, just as suddenly as they started, the killings stopped. Dubbed "Jack the Ripper" by the press, he slipped through the dark, foggy streets of London's Whitchapel district, targeting women and leaving no witnesses and no clues as to his identity. The police were stumped. The press went wild. But no one could find Jack the Ripper. Even today, Jack the Ripper continues to fascinate. Amateur detectives, known as "Ripperologists," books, movies, and walking tours all focus on one question: who was Jack the Ripper? Get a little closer to finding out with this biography that takes a deeper look at Jack the Ripper...because while he may be one of history's worst people, his legend lives on."--Publisher description.
