Default Victims, further reading?

Hi. I am interested in further reading about the lives of the victims, I understand any book will probably have a lot of supposition, I guess I'm looking for something that builds up a picture of what education they were likely to have, what type of work they might have undertaken in younger years and perhaps give some detail on children, parents or siblings.

Are there any such books that anyone could recommend?, at this stage I am particularly interested in Annie Chapman, but also wish to look into Nichols and Eddowes.

Even books that are not particularly about the Whitechapel victims, but the protagonists situations are similar?

The books that you need to get are Neal Shelden's The Victims of Jack The Ripper and Christopher Scott's Will the Real Mary Kelly. Chris and Neal are solid researchers and give the facts, as much as they are known, rather than dealing with speculation and fantasy.

Best regards

Chris

Thanks for the reply Chris, I'm not interested in fantasy or fiction of the victims, but I don't mind a bit of speculation.

Does either of those books try to "Fill in the gaps" so to speak?

Thanks Howard, was looking for a Print book rather than e-book - but 3.60 this side of the pond, cheap as chips, so think I shall start there.
