(softcover)
In the Footsteps of the Whitechapel Murders: An Examination of the Jack the Ripper Murders Using Modern Police Techniques
John F. Plimmer.
214 pgs., illus., 8.95

Casebook Review:

What sounded like a promising book falls terribly flat on the basis of numerous factual mistakes which are simply inexcusable. Plimmer tries to apply modern police techniques to the murders, but his explanations are often quite confusing. Recommended only for the serious researcher and collector.
