Editorial Reviews

Review

"In Jack the Ripper Suspects: The Definitive Guide and Encyclopedia(link is external), Williams describes the eleven victims most often suggested before focusing on nine. He then defines his list of suspects as those accused of one or more of these murders in the Whitechapel area from 1888-1891: the canonical five plus Emma Smith, Martha Tabram, Alice McKenzie, and Frances Coles. Although not included among the top Ripperologists, Williams has nevertheless done an exhaustive job of collecting the names in one place.
   
I'm certain that some will take issue with items in this book because the debate over facts and theories is at the heart of Ripperology. Yet those Ripperologists who can bear having their work reduced to a few sentences or paragraphs, with their favorite candidate dismissed, will have fun with this book. For others, it offers a wealth of material and an organized way to find primary sources. There's even a helpful glossary that sums up who accused the suspect and the basic reason that he, she, or they don't work out. The footnote section is also comprehensive.
   
I wasn't a Ripperologist before I read this book, but thanks to Williams' categories and lists, I'm getting closer. I recommend this book to anyone with a serious interest the Ripper case."
