Default Paul Harrison's Book

Someone has just lent me "Jack the Ripper. The Mystery Solved" which (having looked at the photos) seems to be a Barnett theory. Has anyone else read it?

Regards, Bridewell.

Yes, but Harrison researched the wrong Barnett. The book is largely ignored now.

The great thing about most suspect books is that you can just drop the suspect and still get an overview of the case, and save yourself 100 pages or so of nonsense.

It's a little more readable that Paley's book, but for obvious reasons Paley's book is a helluva lot more accurate.
