General Note: "First published as a Kindle Electronic book, March 2015. This edition updated and expanded 2016."
Bibliography, etc. Note: Includes bibliographical references and index.
Summary, etc.: "Will Jack the Ripper ever be identified? The answer is an emphatic "No". Jack the Ripper did not exist -- except within the minds of his creators and those who for one reason or another have strived for over more than a century to make the myth a reality. "Deconstructing Jack : the Secret History of the Whitechapel Murders" exposes the endless stream of lies, invention, political misinformation, self-publicity and opportunism which has kept this Victorian bogeyman alive in the darkest reaches of our 21st Century imaginations."--back cover.
