In spite of Paul Begg's cheapness (I hope he doesn't read this forum on a regular basis) I still treasure the JTR A-Z!

He's a bum, sweetie !
Actually, Mr. Paul Begg is a member of the Forums ( user name Paul )....and he knows I'm just busting his pauls, er, balls.
It's a great book, Curry....that's for sure.

Another good book to keep at your side is 'East End 1888' by WJ Fishman...it provides a very good account of life in the area at the time...

The Ultimate JtR Companion by Evans/Skinner
The Complete History of JtR by Sugden
CSI: Whitechapel by Begg/Bennett
The Bank Holiday Murders by Wescott
Scotland Yard Investigates by Evans/Rumbelow

I've reach of them several times and they are the books I most often reference.

For me Tom Cullen is the most enjoyable read. A classic, full of color and suspense, and he gets it done in 250 pages. That's a pro.

I bought it recently for a song

Actually, what happened was I threw the copy I was reading at Roy to get him to stop singing.

Yours truly,
