  • The Mystery of Jack the Ripper; Leonard Matters

    I just borrowed a copy of The Mystery of Jack the Ripper by Leonard Matters and after checking the Book Reviews section, I came here to check for any comments. I found NOTHING here! Just page after page of the Diary, Patricia Cornwall and other media-driven threads; although recently-released material is MUCH better covered. So I thought I'd put up some threads for reviews, comments, thoughts, etc. for some of the neglected books (especially the older ones)- starting with...

    The Mystery of Jack the Ripper by Leonard Matters (1929). It's preferred that the focus here is primarily on the book itself, rather than focusing on the theory proposed, but since there doesn't seem to be a devoted Dr. Stanley page in the Suspects section, go wild.

    Hi C.F.,

    Before getting stuck into Leonard Matters' 1929 book, it might be worth your while digging out a copy of the Salt Lake Herald, 25th August 1901, in which the same Buenos Aires story first appeared.


    Never believe anything until it has been officially denied.
