Description

The fullest possible account of the crimes of Peter Sutcliffe, the Yorkshire Ripper, including those he was not charged with and has never previously been connected to.

The police believed that Sutcliffe attacked women only in Manchester and West Yorkshire, travelling in his car. The authors show that, in fact, he attacked his victims across the UK and sometimes even overseas, while driving his employer’s lorry.

Now that Sutcliffe is dead the full extent of his crimes cannot be known, but authors Chris Clark and Tim Hicks have meticulously researched his life and, in this definitive investigation, they reveal many previously unknown victims for the first time. The book includes a number of first-hand accounts from women and children who narrowly escaped death at Sutcliffe’s hand.

The police failed to deliver justice for the victims’ families – both in the original investigation and in subsequent cold-case reviews – and the media has failed to hold them to account for this failure. The authors hope that by revealing all Sutcliffe’s attacks and telling the victims’ stories they can help to bring closure for friends and relatives of his victims, both those who are known and those who have remained unacknowledged – until now.

Thank you NetGalley for the ARC in exchange for a review.

Having just watched ‘The Long Shadow’ about the crimes of this heinous man, my interest in the case was ignited. While I remember it, k was young at the time.

This book is well written and well researched. It is easy in hindsight to see failures of the relevant departments in catching this man, but what this book does is honour the victims by telling their stories and allowing their voice to be heard.

Best book I have read on this case yet, covers a bunch of things I wasn't aware of until now and I am starting to think there are a lot of things this man hasn't been charged with. Even if you are not familiar with this case this book should not be a huge problem to get into.
