Jack the Ripper: Scotland Yard Investigates
Stewart P. Evans and Donald Rumbelow
Sutton Publishing, 2006.
Hardcover. 304pp. Illustrated, bibiliography, index.

Casebook Review:

Jack the Ripper: Scotland Yard Investigates is the story of Jack the Ripper told from the police perspective. And who better to tell that story than two retired police officers who both happen to be top names in the field of Ripperology! The book is not only an excellent overview of the case, but it also contains a great deal of new information - not the least of which are two never-before-published photographs of Ripper suspect Jacob Isenschmidt. A fantastic overview of Sir Charles Warren's life and career is also included, as well as some particularly insightful epilogues, one by each co-author, offering a unique view on their research and their perspectives on where the field is heading.

The book is richly illustrated throughout, and contains some useful appendices including "A List of Letters Sent to the City Police". Well-recommended to all students of the case.
