Casebook Review:

An above-average Ripper book, certainly one of the best small-scale publications to hit the market in recent years. Gordon champions George Chapman as the murderer, but his argument do not completely convince. Nevertheless, an exhaustive study of canonical and non-canonical victims (more than two dozen, total) as well an in-depth review of Chapman's life and crimes make it well worth the purchase. Recommended.
