Summary
Jack the Ripper is the quintessential Victorian serial killer, and the debate continues with regard to the number of his victims: were there just four or five, or more than nine of them? But there is a profusion of unsolved murders of London women from late Victorian times, and this book presents eleven of the most gruesome and mysterious of them. Marvel at the convoluted Kingswood Mystery and the unsolved Cannon Street Murder of 1866; shudder at the Hoxton Horror and the Great Coram Street Murder of 1872; be puzzled by the West Ham Disappearances and by the unsolved railway murder of Elizabeth Camp in 1898. Murder often came to call at the flyblown lodging-houses and brothels of old Bloomsbury, as well as in the houses of Burton Crescent and Euston Square. Prostitutes were murdered in London brothels in 1863, in 1872 and in 1884; none of the murders were ever solved. There are many books about the Whitechapel fiend, but this is the first one to detail the ghoulish handiwork of the Rivals of the Ripper
