    Martin Fido's book is by far the best.

        Read Martin and Donald and use the rest to start fires.

        There are two ways to be fooled, one is to believe what isn't true, the other is to refuse to believe that which is true.

          On second thoughts there is so much wrong in Russell Edward's it might not even be any good for getting a fire going.

            Agreed on Martin Fido, but why should someone read Donald McCormicks book?

                How did you obtain that particular list of books on the subject?

                If one could choose to randomly order the same number of Ripper related books i'd imagine it would turn out better.

                  The reason that I got these books was there was a section of the book shop full of true crime books several of which were jtr books. Upon looking through them there were about 30 jtr and of these the ones listed were the ones i didnt have so i got them.

                    I'm sure you'll get a laugh out of Edwards and Lowndes' story is a nice little piece of fiction, if a bit dated! I've never read Fuller's book on Sickert. Tell us what you think of it when you've finished please.
