On the Trail of Jack the Ripper | Richard Charles Cobb

Pickpick

It seems that true crime aficionados cannot read enough about the murders committed by the infamous ‘Jack the Ripper‘ in 1888. I count myself in those gripped by the case as I've read countless books about the subject & I'm as fascinated as ever. This book is the literary equivalent of a walking tour around the sites which would have been frequented by those who lived in Whitechapel in 1888. (Continued)

OutsmartYourShelf It seems wrong to say that you enjoyed reading a book about a series of real-life murders, but in this case, the focus is more on the physical places where the crimes occurred rather than the crimes themselves. (Having said that, there are several quite graphic photographs of some of the deceased)..........It's a fairly short book but it keeps the attention & the author has obviously done their homework. 5🌟

OutsmartYourShelf I can't really count hours read for #Scarathlon2022 as I read the first couple of chapters yesterday so it's ineligible for all the readathons, but I am counting the words found during my reading today.

238 words found so 2380 points.
