About this deal

Suspicion initially fell on Joseph Barnett in 1972 when, in an article in True Crime magazine, American former private investigator Bruce Paley suggested he was Jack the Ripper. The front cover has a magnetic holder which keeps the book closed after reading, you wont close the book much, so it's a waste of time, but a really nice touch, and makes the book stand out on the shelf.

As promised, the book never tries to draw its own conclusions, but presents the facts of the case as is from a balanced viewpoint. By using the Web site, you confirm that you have read, understood, and agreed to be bound by the Terms and Conditions. in the book there are copies of the letters he wrote to taunt police, they are presented on seperate pieces of paper which is a really nice touch. If Barnett had stopped living with Kelly, his claim that they both opened the keyless door by using the procedure he described was not understood.His physiognomy resembled the person who was described accompanying some victims before their murders; above all, age and height match. However, Barnett explained that, despite their confrontation, they remained on cordial terms, to the point that when he got a new job, he offered financial assistance to Kelly.

It was a real pleasure to read, and re-read, and read again, and this will take pride of place on the book case, at least until I read it again! The whole concept is very cleverly done, with copies of original documents in pockets throughout the book at certain points in the chronology of the crime period. The crimes of Jack the Ripper have haunted the imagination of the world since his murderous reign drew to a close late in 1888. Anmerken muss ich auch, dass die Sprache im gesamten Buch definitiv nichts für Englisch Anfänger ist!This situation stoked the ire of Barnett, who decided to leave her after a fiery fight on 30 October 1888. It is an easy to digest book with each double spread focusing on a different aspect complete with illustrations and photographs.
