Default Jewbaiter ?

I'm currently awaiting my copy of the Francis Thompson book but I was wondering if anyone had read the Stephen Senise book Jewbaiter, which I've been considering as my next purchase? Would anyone who has read it like to comment please? Does it push a new suspect? Is it well written or even worth buying?
Thanks all.

It doesn't push a new suspect, but don't let that deter you. The book is very well written, providing some interesting historical/contextual information which I found absorbing. It's well worth buying.

Thanks for that Sam. It's next on the list after the Thompson book. When I first got interested around 30 years ago I used to grab every new book in anticipation. Now they seem to come out in floods so I try to be a bit more selective. Anyway, thanks again.

I don't always agree with them, but Paul Begg's reviews in the Ripperologist are always a good guideline to what, or what isn't, worth reading.
