Edgar's Guide to Jack the Ripper's East End By Richard Jones, Adam Wood Cover Image


Edgar's Guide to Jack the Ripper's East End is the ultimate tour around the sites of the infamous Whitechapel Murders. It enables you to visit all but one of the eleven murder sites, and delve deeper into the backstreets of Spitalfields and Whitechapel than you would ever think possible. In so doing you will see much more of the real East End, and venture into places that have changed little, if at all, since the Ripper prowled their shadows. But this is not just a traditional guide book; this is a full history of the Whitechapel murders. As you make your way around the route, you will be learning more of the story with every step taken, uncovering the fascinating story in the streets and at the very locations where it unfolded. Indeed, the history contained in this 200-page book is so detailed, that you can enjoy it without even venturing out to take the tour, making it the perfect addition to the library of the most ardent armchair detective. Another first offered by this Edgar's Guide is a separate tour - done by bus, train and Underground - that allows you to visit the graves of the five 'canonical' victims - Mary Ann Nichols, Annie Chapman, Elizabeth Stride, Catherine Eddowes and Mary Kelly. No other guidebook offers you this poignant opportunity.
