Can anyone point me in the direction of where I can obtain a copy of Jack the Ripper-The Secret Police Files by Trevor Marriott? (Not Kindle).

Many thanks Trevor, read this bit.......

"This new publication incorporates material from the previous publications “Jack the Ripper-A 21st Century Investigation”(2002) and “Jack the Ripper- the Secret Police Files”(2013) and now includes new evidence and new facts obtained in the interim periods of time." and thought that's great!!

Then I saw this bit and my heart sank
"Available in Kindle only, price £4.99"

Any plans to publish it as a proper book? (can't take to Kindle I'm afraid).

Purchased it just now. So that's another £4.99 to add to that filthy pile of lucre you have already got Trev.

One thing puzzles me. The files must have been specific about informants, because with such a transient population good luck finding out which Donovan, Sullivan, or Kelly (for example) it was after a hundred odd years. That doesn't make any sense.

Anyway, I'll read the book.

All the best.

As you will see out of 30.000 entries in the SB Register, there were only a handful of named informants, whose names were either in surname only, or pseudonyms, and could not be formally identified.

In other official documents uncovered there were specific informants who were named and could be identified. These documents were up for grabs in the public domain. So the police argument of not ever releasing the names of informants from the register did not stand up.

Certainly makes you wonder what their game was doesn't?
But having said that if there was anything dodgy in there, they could just have easily denied there existence, or indeed have destroyed it, or not even have documented anything in the first place........................

Having spent a lot of time, and money, on trying to secure their release, and from what I know and have seen, I do not think there were any smoking ripper guns to be found in them in any event.

Lindsay Clutterbuck read them all when preparing his University thesis, and had there been any major ripper revelations he would surely have mentioned them in that thesis.

The truth is they didn't know what they had until people started asking questions about them and wanting to see them.

Relieved and disappointed at the same time if I'm honest.

The conspiracy theorists amongst us might not be so easily placated mind
