  • Hello Casebook people

    Hi Everyone,
    My name is Peter and I'm a 52 year old dad from Melbourne Australia.
    I guess I first became interested in JTR back in the 70s as a kid, seeing the odd TV special or short article on the matter.
    I often browse old second hand book stores and stumbled across "JTR. The Final Solution" a few years ago...I can hear the sighs now!
    I've read a few other books since (and have more in the bookcase yet to be read) and came across this website early last year. So, although I was unable to post, I've enjoyed the ride, some of the discussions have been, let's say, most entertaining, and yes, very informative.
    When I build up enough courage to enter the fray I'll post some thoughts on the following -
    A6 Rebooted - nothing, I have no idea what this one is about...and at this stage it looks like there's way too many pages to read to get up to date on it.
    From Hell - I have a few thoughts, but nothing earth shattering.
    Move to Murder - it was through Casebook that I first heard of this mystery and was following it until it was closed. I therefore looked up other websites and books. I have a few (earth shattering) things to say on this matter...we can't let WWH and Herlock have all the fun!
    Other General JTR matters - I am not sold on any particular suspect and would just like to add my 2 cents here and there.
    Look forward to meeting you all somewhere in the site

    Welcome Ven! From one Melbournite to another. Final Solution was my first book too, but back in the 70's (19 not 18 that is).

          Looks like I've gotta add an avatar and a byline and all I can think of is an image of Brian Connelly and a line from Fox On the Run!

                If your "handle" means you can interpret double Dutch,feel right at home.
