The Trial of Jack the Ripper: The Case of William Bury (1859-89)
Euan Macpherson
Mainstream Publishing, 2005
ISBN: 1-84596-011-4
Softcover

Casebook Review:

A brilliant overview of the case against William Henry Bury, by the man who first brought him to wide attention in the 1980s. The first half of the book is devoted to a biographical account, along with detailed coverage of the murder and subsequent trial. Unfortunately the second half, a basic overview of the Ripper crimes, contains far too many errors and ommissions.

Nevertheless, this is certainly the best book yet published on Bury and his Ripper connections, and anyone interested in his candidacy would surely find much value in this book. Recommended.
