about

The most famous killer of Victorian England was someone''s son, he was born, just like the rest of us and he grew up... He just happened to grow into the Whitechapel murderer. With his own words, Jack describes his life. How his idyllic childhood was torn from him. How he learned to survive under the harsh care of nuns and how he learned what it first felt like to kill. We gradually see his life unfurl before us, each harsh lesson a new reason to find women miserable creatures of sin and the men who use them equally foul. Jack the Ripper is an intriguing story. For the first time we not only occupy the head of the most well known serial killer from history but we also learn how he was created, from his humble beginnings to his final declaration. The book is written with a style that is reminiscent of a reasonably educated Victorian gentleman. At times it is harrowing and thought provoking. The skill of the writer is deft as you are drawn into Jack''s world and end up sympathising with him, understanding completely how he comes to be the killer of Whitechapel.
