    2. Worth buying just for the bibliography of every book and article up to the point it was written aboiut jack the ripper, elsewhere there are some excellent summaries of all the major to that point theories from Duke Clarence Unlikely to Druitt Which needs only some reason why the police believed it was him to be likely As a summary this works perfectly and you could do worse if you want all the details and summaries of all the theories ranging from Jill The Ripper to the Doctor Ripper and beyond.

    3. Posiblemente se trate del mejor compendio de informaci n que exist a en los 80 sobre el caso Aunque omite casi totalmente cualquier referencia al contexto hist rico y social, es de muy adictiva lectura y al menos opta por ofrecer una interpretaci n seria de unos hechos que han dado lugar a especulaciones de lo m s variopintas,
