NAMING JACK THE RIPPER by Russell Edwards

The true identity of Jack the Ripper remains the biggest mystery in the history of serial killers. This book offers forensic evidence to naming who the Ripper was. I liked the forensic approach more than other angles taken by previous researches (psychology, for example). Give it a read, perhaps you will be fascinated too!

MAY GOD HAVE MERCY: A TRUE STORY OF CRIME AND PUNISHMENT by John C. Tucker

This was a disturbing read. It was compelling and well-written but would leave you feeling disturbed and frustrated. The author did an excellent job in bringing the frustration over the carelessness of the so-called justice system to light.
