    The problem with attempting to solve a mystery 130 years after it occurred is that most of the evidence, physical and otherwise, has either disappeared or is degraded The author of this book attempts to go through the paper trail of a known escapee from a British insane asylum to prove that person to be the famous Jack the Ripper While the author makes a good case with the paper trail that he uses, I still find there to be too much speculation and too many possibilities without fact Therefo The problem with attempting to solve a mystery 130 years after it occurred is that most of the evidence, physical and otherwise, has either disappeared or is degraded The author of this book attempts to go through the paper trail of a known escapee from a British insane asylum to prove that person to be the famous Jack the Ripper While the author makes a good case with the paper trail that he uses, I still find there to be too much speculation and too many possibilities without fact Therefore, this book joins the many others in the corpus of Jack the Ripper title entertaining reading and speculative, but not definitive The book is a good entertaining read, but not much else

    I have always been into this genre of writing James Tully keeps you fascinated with each page turn I am not convinced that this particular person was Jack the Ripper, but the author lays it out and presents it so well, you may be swayed to think that his postulations are possible.Very well written and compelling A must read if you like this sort of book.

    Makes a convincing case that This Man may have been Jack the Ripper All fans of true crime should enjoy this, but especially Ripperologists.

    This was one of the books I picked up to read during lunch while I was a librarian I would generally choose a random new release, take it in the back room with me for lunch, and put it back after half an hour This is one of the rare random books that I actually took home and finished It was fascinating, and pretty convincing I don t know if I totally believe his conclusions, but it made for a very interesting read Not for the overly squeamish, though not unneccesarily gruesome either.

    I have read a good number of Ripper ologist books and this is by far at the top of my list It has many of the same items that the other books have, the photos, the few facts surrounding the killings and so forth, however the theory that Jack the Ripper was this one man Prisoner 1167 I don t want to say too much if you re going to read it , well, it s still just a theory but an fascinating read The only drawback it took me a good 25 to 30% of the book to really get into it, but it was wo I have read a good number of Ripper ologist books and this is by far at the top of my list It has many of the same items that the other books have, the photos, the few facts surrounding the killings and so forth, however the theory that Jack the Ripper was this one man Prisoner 1167 I don t want to say too much if you re going to read it , well, it s still just a theory but an fascinating read The only drawback it took me a good 25 to 30% of the book to really get into it, but it was worth the read and I highly recommend it

    A very well researched view of each of the Ripper murders detailing all of the subsequent proceedings as well as the associated locales The author then goes on to make a case for the fit of James Kelly, an escapee from a nearby lunatic asylum, with the timing as well as specifics of the killings The presentation is very straightforward and matter of fact in terms of style, almost as if being reported for a newspaper or other type of publication.

    I found myself pleasantly surprised by the first 4 5 of this book I both love and hate the mystery of Jack the Ripper because it can provide an interesting look at the late Victorian period but most authors choose instead to focus on the titillation aspect But Tully manages to provide a nuanced and sympathetic portrait of both his candidate for the ripper and his victims His candidate, James Kelly, also makes a bitsense than others too But the last 1 5 is where we go a bit of the rails I found myself pleasantly surprised by the first 4 5 of this book I both love and hate the mystery of Jack the Ripper because it can provide an interesting look at the late Victorian period but most authors choose instead to focus on the titillation aspect But Tully manages to provide a nuanced and sympathetic portrait of both his candidate for the ripper and his victims His candidate, James Kelly, also makes a bitsense than others too But the last 1 5 is where we go a bit of the rails Actually a lot Tully casually throws out there that Kelly s wife was obviously a sex worker because there s two different stories about where she had gone one night It couldn t be due to the fact that her family had just witnessed something horrible and traumatic and that Kelly is an unreliable narrator, no her family was covering for their daughter doing sex work And then, of course, the murder of Mary Kelly was extra brutal because she was his wife s sister who moved away from her family to do sex work and took on her sister s killer s surname because that s just what you do and it s makes muchsense than the fact that Kelly is a very common surname and finding two unrelated people in a densely populated area with the same super common surname wouldn t be unheard of Nope, not at all
