The Crimes of Jack the Ripper: An Investigation into the World's Most Intriguing Unsolved Case
Paul Roland
Arcturus Foulsham, 2006
ISBN 0572032854
Hardcover. 208pp.

Casebook Review:

In The Crimes of Jack the Ripper, Paul Roland provides a well-balanced overview of the main aspects of the case. The canonical murders are covered in some details, and several of the main witnesses and suspects are discussed. The book is extensively illustrated and includes timely coverage of some of the latest theories and research. In the end Roland doesn't necessarily claim to have solved the case, but suggests Jacob Levy as a "very likely" suspect in his mind.

Overall a good book. It is more of a coffee-table-book production, in large format and with many illustrations.
