Casebook Review:

The captivating story of Rhynwick Williams who held the women of London in a state of panic in the 1780s. Bondeson weaves a fascinating book - which reads like a novel - around the story, showing how London of the late 18th century dealt with a murder sensation not unlike that which would occur in Whitechapel a century later... highly recommended.
