Jack The Ripper – The Hull Connection – Mike Covell

Much has been written about the mysterious events in Whitechapel, London in 1888. What is known is that several prostitutes were murdered over the space of 12 months, but five were special for a reason: they were all mutilated after death, some more so than others.

But who were actually the victims of Jack the Ripper, and more mysteriously, who was Jack the Ripper? Many theories have been presented over the years; some that will make you sit up and take notice, and others that vanish into the night like the killer himself.

In this book, the focus is on suspects with links to Hull. Could one of them have been the most infamous serial killer of all time?
