Casebook Review:

Until recently, this was considered the "bible" of Ripperologists. Rumbelow was one of the first to compile an intelligent, well-researched history of the murders. Today the book is somewhat outdated, as much have been learned since its publication, but it is still a wonderful introduction to the case. Highly recommended for all students of the case.
