All you ever wanted to know about Jack the Ripper
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.
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.
Psychopath or conspiracy - consider the evidence . . .
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.

A must for any ripperologist .
