Publisher's Summary

Serial killer doctor Henry Howard "H.H." Holmes was the most viable suspect for the 1888 Whitechapel London murders attributed to the enigma we have come to know as "Jack the Ripper". The research in this nonfiction true crime investigative journal of documents and case file historic accounts reveals startling information that leads the listener to perhaps the most hidden secrets behind the crimes. A "perfect dichotomy" that produces evidence that one man may have been a serial killer on two continents in the 19th century, responsible for the deaths of hundreds, or thousands of innocent victims.

Documentation amassed from the London Metropolitan Police, the British National Archives, the Federal Bureau of Investigations, and the American National Archives, along with many outside sources, bring to light new testimony and eyewitness reports that help to solve these 125-year-old crimes resolving this cold case crime.

    "Wish there had been more..."
    Would you try another book from Dane Ladwig and/or Alex Hyde-White, Punch Audio?

    Since you ask, I'm not sure I would. Dane Ladwig came across as conceited, more interested in talking about the fact that he felt he solved the Jack the Ripper case than actually presenting his evidence for it.


    What could Dane Ladwig have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Not stopped to ask me to purchase a hard copy of the book.


    Do you think Dr. H.H. Holmes and The Whitechapel Ripper needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    It's in dire need of a follow-up.


    Any additional comments?

    As I had never heard this theory before, I was intrigued. I did learn quite a bit about H.H. Holmes, previously I had only read about the Pietzl case. The idea that he could be Jack the Ripper seems plausible, but the author never really presented his evidence for thinking so. I kept waiting for a timeline of events, laying everything out, a clear presentation of the case. Everything was sort of round about and difficult to follow.

    "The Ripper"
    Any additional comments?


    A very interesting and well researched book. It's a scary thought with the idea that Holmes had been in London during the ripper killings.Very interesting.
