One thought on “Jack the Ripper: The Casebook

  1. Joey Woolfardis

    This book contains all the details you could desire to learn more about the man they called Jack the Ripper: a murderer in the Whitechapel area of London who murdered prostitutes and was the one that got away. It is unbiased, though the way it is set out makes it feel as if the murders have been trivialised a little for entertainment purposes. Wanting to learn about a murder doesn't mean you condone it, but this feels like it blurs the line between a horrific act by a detestable man and just som [...]

  2. Jo

    This is a great book for anybody fascinated by this famous case as it contains facsimiles of documents from the police archives. Jones brings nothing new to the table (but then again, what else is there to say?) but presents his facts in an interesting and informative way.

  3. A Bald Mage** Steve

    ( A Two Bald Mages Review )A Good memorabilia piece with all the case notes of each murder committed by Jack the Ripper. It comes complete with grizzly photos and replica letters that were sent to the police during the Ripper Murders, if you are interested in Jack the Ripper this is a must buy 8/10

  4. Rachel McQuoid

    this book is fantastic, it is unbiased and presents all the information, enabling you to draw your own conclusion the book there are copies of the letters he wrote to taunt police, they are presented on seperate pieces of paper which is a really nice touch.overall i think the book was very well done and laid out perfectly.

  5. Jacqui Jacoby

    I think the information, along with the pullouts was very good. The fact it was printed in a font size you need a magnifying glass for -- it made the reading really, really hard and I know I missed a lot.

  6. Anna

    A very compact book filled to the brim with information about the great mystery that is Jack the Ripper. A fascinating case if I may say so myself, even if I find police recordings and murder investigations a bit dull, probably because I've watched way too many cop shows.Yeah, well the police at that time probably couldn't compare to the overly cliched cool of David Caruso, but I digress. I liked that the book included actual copies of the police reports and Ripper letters, rather than just givi [...]

  7. Nicole

    I bought this at the Sherlock Holmes museum giftshop, but I saw it is also available everywhere else.This book describes on every page , and only on one page, the victims of Jack the Ripper, it starts with a short introduction of the life and the people of the East End during this century and ended with the main suspects of the murder series.Concerning that only one page for every subject is available, the informations of course were kept short, but that doesn't break the reading enjoyment down. [...]

  8. Lise

    A quick read, presumably aimed at the younger reader who has a casual interest on the subject. All the information you expect to find and indeed handy for anybody who might want to look some specific detail up at ease. As somebody who had been to the casebook website many a time, this really is a good addition to a Victorian crime enthusiasts bookshelf, specifically because it includes facsimiles of the documents associated with the Whitechapel murders. All in all, fun and fascinating was of acq [...]

  9. Michelle

    A good method to convey the information available on this notorious case to the casually interested reader. One can choose or not to try to decipher the writing of the copies of source documents included. Since I took the Jack the Ripper walk in London a year and a half ago, it sufficiently chilled with the remembrance of the rainy and dreary locations of crime, despite the various modern changes of the area over the years.

  10. Joseph

    I like the book because I like mystery books.I also like the book because I like to learn about things in history.I also like to learn about killers because if I meet one that I don't know I will know what attributes to look for.And I like this book a lot because this case is still unsolved The plot is that this person murdered manny people and this mystery is still unsolved

  11. Zoe

    For all jack the Ripper buffs this book is a must. Copies of original documents combined with an easy to read breakdown of the Whitechapel murders events and gloss pictures makes this a very enjoyable, all be it disturbing read.

  12. Kristin

    This book gives a good broad overview of the victims of Jack the Ripper as well as key witnesses and the suspects. It's short on details, but at least doesn't promote one theory over another. Plus the layout is fun.

  13. Izabela

    This book is a great little reference for people who know little about Jack the Ripper all the way through those who are familiar with it. If the pull-out facsimiles were actually readable, I'd give it 5 stars.

  14. Mark

    A book like this, and yetNO map of Whitechapel showing the murder sites. Lame omission. Also, as with just about all other ripper books"facts", are not nearly all facts.

  15. Meg Fox

    brilliant thing to have.i love all the little pockets of letters. also have a sherlock holmes one. jack the ripper is a favourite subject of mine.

  16. Lisa Fuller

    Creepy in a fascinating way. Reading this was like watching a car wreck. I just couldn't look away, no matter how much it twisted my stomach.

  17. Stu Nami

    Quick and easy read. Plenty of information, not only about the murders, but the era. The best part are the reproductions of police reports and "Ripper" letters that are included.

  18. Derek

    A fun collection of factoids, photographs and documents that is best used as a companion to a more in depth resource on the subject.

  19. April Vangelderen

    Gave me new insite on the case and why they call him/them Jack The Ripper. Also with the extra papers and such, made me feel like a real detective.
