The Jack the Ripper Casebook
Michael Kersting
Lulu, 2006. 51pp. Softcover.

Casebook Review: No stars.

This short work is split between a 42 page non-fictional overview of the case and a 9-page fictional short story by the author. Unfortunately, all but a few sentences of the non-fiction portion of this book have been plagiarized (without attribution) from a handful of online Jack the Ripper resources, including www.casebook.org, www.london-walks.co.uk, and a report published on the UC-Davis website. A few paragraphs even appear to have been stolen from a MySpace blog entry!

Not recommended.
