Jack the Ripper: A Confession
Cooper, Geoff and Gordon Punter
London: RipperArt. 2005.
257pp. [Fiction]
ISBN: 0-9546603-3-1

Casebook Review:

Geoff Cooper and Gordon Punter of ripperArt pull off another fine production with "Jack the Ripper: A Confession". Although a fictional treatment of the crimes, the authors include plenty of historical nuggets (maps, police reports, contemporary newspaper accounts, etc.) within the text, which only adds to the sense of realism. The story focuses largely on Mary Kelly and the men in her life who gave rise to the "Jack the Ripper" legend. Recommended.
