    As a Jack the Ripper enthusiastic I was able to read this and get my fill of Ripper interest. It is a wonderful addition to my collection.

    I truly admire the amount of work that Mike Covell must have put into the gathering and collating of all the documents reproduced in this book. It is, in fact, more a reference book than a book that I would normally read for pleasure, it includes all the reports in newspapers in Hull about the murders committed by Jack the Ripper in London. Because there are were quite a few newspapers printed in Hull at the time and the same story is repeated in each one and then put into the book almost always I truly admire the amount of work that Mike Covell must have put into the gathering and collating of all the documents reproduced in this book.

Because there are were quite a few newspapers printed in Hull at the time and the same story is repeated in each one and then put into the book almost always verbatim and sometimes for several days at a time that alone is a lot of repetition. As well as the actual reporting of the murders the papers then covered witness interviews, inquest reports and post mortem reports for each murder, all repeated in each paper, that makes a lot of reading. I kept going because I did find out a few things about the case that I had not previously read and also because actually reading the newspaper reports gave a real feeling of what it must have been like to live in that area of London during those awful days. I had pictured Victorian Whitechapel as a dark and deserted place with quiet streets except for one or two women forced to earn their living by selling themselves for a few pence for a meal and place to sleep. It seems that in reality, Whitechapel was far from quiet at night, there were, of course, many public houses but there were also coffee stalls providing hot drinks for people after they left the pubs, there were even fruit and vegetable stalls and kiosks open at that late hour. The number of people was also considerably more than I thought, if you did not have a few pence for a bed then your only choice was to wander the streets for the night. The terror that must have been felt by the ordinary people at the time must have been extreme but the newspapers added to that by giving Jack The Ripper almost supernatural powers, he was reported as having bright glittering, terrifying eyes, a peculiar and terrifying grin and he was able to walk silently so that his victims never heard him approach until it was too late!
