All you ever wanted to know about Jack the Ripper

Would you listen to The Mammoth Book of the Jack the Ripper Stories again? Why?

I would listen again, particularly on a long drive, because I'm sure I missed some salient points by listening whilst sewing/doing housework/gardening. It would be good to listen without such distractions.

What did you like best about this story?

I enjoyed the various hypotheses - difficult to specify my particular favourite, as it would spoil the revelation - and had already read some of the books mentioned. Indeed, we once lived in Wilkes Street in London and Jack committed one of his gruesome murders at the end of that road - one of the reasons I became intrigued by the case.

Have you listened to any of Kris Dyer’s other performances? How does this one compare?


If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Psychopath or conspiracy - consider the evidence . . .

Any additional comments?

A challenging read, particularly some if the descriptions of the injuries, but very thought-provoking with regard to the possible identity of Jack - or of the conspirators.
