    We'll probably never know. I've read and seen many books and movies on the subject, but this book is the first I've encountered that doesn't sensationalize Jack. This is a typically thorough job by Robert Keller. I was especially drawn to the use of modern profiling to give some clues about the identity and motives of the Whitechapel murder. I recommend the book to fans of true crime stories, fans of Ann Rule, M. William Phelps, Aphrodite Jones -- and, of course, Robert Keller.

    I love Robert Keller's books. I think we've all heard Jack the Ripper stories our entire life. So many speculations but we will probably never know for sure. Robert has done extensive research on this and there was a lot of info here that I'd never heard before and also put a lot of theories to rest about who he really was. It's a quick read and I recommend it to anyone with interest in this 'cold case'.

    The Devil in Whitechapel is a terrific introduction to the history surrounding Jack the Ripper. The first half of the book is devoted to the details of the crimes. In the second half Robert Keller distinguishes between known facts and suppositions closing with a very well argued systematic approach to finally unveiling the identity of the killer. Very well done!

    Good summation of who might be Jack and also separates a lot of ripper fact from fiction. Kudos on negating Patricia Cornwell's book on Walter Sickert being Jack. Most likely Cornwell discovered that Sickert wrote at least one Ripper letter. None of the reasons that might have caused jack's reign of terror to end would apply to Sickert who lived for decades subsequent to mary nichol's death without incarceration or lunacy confinement.

    This is an interesting study of Jack the Ripper with some thought-provoking insights as to the character and identity of the Ripper. There are quite a few errors in the book, but the story is worthwhile reading.

    Good coverage of Jack the Ripper's killings in Whitechapel, but of course Jack was never caught, so not as satisfying as this is a real life tale.

    This was an in-depth yet brief account of Jack the Ripper. It was an enjoyable read and I highly recommend it as an excellent introduction to the elusive killer.

    A very good book. The author does a very good job analizing the profile of this unknown killer and a possible reason why he suddenly stopped killing.
