Simon Wood - Deconstructing Jack

Jack the Ripper did not exist.

This second, expanded, edition of Simon Daryl Wood's award-winning book continues to reveal 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. It introduces characters many readers may not have encountered before, takes a closer look at some of Ripperology's sacred texts, and provides additional facts, allowing for a better understanding of the people, places and events surrounding the Whitechapel murders of 1888.

Book of the Year 2015.

Finalist, International Book Awards, 2016
