Jack the Ripper: The Murders and the Myths

Five brutal murders shocked London in the summer and autumn of 1888. They have never been forgotten.

The Jack the Ripper case has never been solved - the killer remains a blood-spattered silhouette. Although 'Jack' as an entity was almost certainly invented by an unscrupulous journalist, he became an archetype - decked in the top hat and cloak of a Victorian melodrama villain, stalking the fog-wreathed streets of the old East End. The numerous Ripper theories which emerged at the time tell us more about Victorian attitudes than they do about the killer's true identity.

Jack the Ripper follows the grim homicidal trails that have permeated popular culture since the Whitechapel murders of 1888. Conspiracy theories and myths that swirl around the case to this day, from black magicians to the royal family, are considered, as is the modern forensic view of the Ripper murders, with reference to disturbing modern cases such as that of the 'Plumstead Ripper'.
