Uncovering Jack The Ripper’s London by Richard Jones

Uncovering Jack The Ripper London

The crimes of Jack the Ripper have gone down in history as some of the most brutal and violent ever committed. These horrendous acts of serial murder confounded the police at the time, and the mystery of the Ripper’s identity remains unsolved to this day. In addition to the sense of fear and panic the murders brought to the London streets of the late 1880s, they also shed a harsh light on the impoverished and dangerous conditions of the East End and brought numerous tensions to boiling point.

This is not a typical Jack the Ripper publication that attempts to sensationalize or embellish the facts of the 1888 murder mystery by attempting to build a case against a particular suspect. Rather, it is a gripping day by day account of ten weeks in 1888, when an unknown murderer, lurking in some of the capital’s worst slums, sent a wave of terror and panic surging through the whole of Victorian society.

This lavishly illustrated book includes several never before published photographs of the streets and places where the murders occurred. In addition it has many full colour and atmospheric photographs of the murder sites as they are today.

Martin D Pipher – Amazon Review

Anyone interested in “Jack the Ripper” will surely find this book to be of interest. As a matter of fact, I found it more interesting than any of the previous books I have read about this most famous of all murderers. Each of those books had a story to tell and something to prove, but, although convincing, they didn’t necessarily tell the whole story or perhaps even the real story. This book takes a different tack, it simply takes you back to the streets of the Whitechapel District of London in the 1880’s and lets you walk with and listen to those who lived there, many of whom were prostitutes living on the streets in fear for their lives.closequote

Michael O’Connor – Amazon Review

Jones’ volume is part history, part travel guide to London’s East End circa 1888. Using contemporary press accounts, period photographs and present-day images, he does an excellent job of immersing the reader in life in the East End and the effect “Jack” – assuming there was only one murderer! – had on its residents. He very wisely, in my opinion, doesn’t spend time running through ‘the usual suspects’ but concentrates on portraying how terrible life was for East End residents even before the Ripper started stalking its dark and filthy streets. All in all, a fresh and interesting look at murderous times long ago. Ripper fans will enjoy.closequote

Unmasking Jack The Ripper

Unmasking Jack The Ripper

This acclaimed 75 minute dram-documentary was filmed on the streets of Whitechapel at each one of the Jack the Ripper Murder Sites.

Filmed on location in the East End of London, viewers can enjoy a fascinating journey around the actual murder sites as the compelling narrative creates a vivid picture of what the area was actually like in the autumn of 1888, when terror stalked the shadows, and the coming of night brought fear and panic to those who lived in the area.

‘Unmasking Jack the Ripper’ was written by and is presented by best selling author Richard Jones. He has featured on three Jack the Ripper documentaries on both the History and Discovery Channel’s including the acclaimed The Hunt For Jack The Ripper. He was also featured on the DVD that accompanied the Johnny Depp film From Hell, providing an expert opinion on the identity of Jack the Ripper.

Dramatic reconstructions, filmed in both the superbly sinister London Dungeon and the equally macabre House of Detention in Clerkenwell, ensure that the action never flags as you enjoy a breathtaking and bloodcurdling journey through the autumn of terror.

Ripperologist Magazine

‘Unmasking Jack the Ripper’ reconstructs the main points of the Ripper story with skill, seamlessly weaving dramatic reconstructions, narration and interviews with experts in a lively way that keeps this well-trodden story fresh and interesting. Perhaps the best…[Jack the Ripper]…documentary to have been produced in recent years.closequote

Stephen Ryder – Casebook Jack The Rippper

I’m not a big fan of Ripper documentaries, admittedly, but I have to say that Richard’s is certainly one of the best – if not the best – I’ve ever seen. None of the same old tired clichés you get in the run-of-the-mill docs I’m sure we’re all familiar with. I’d recommend it.closequote

Ripper Notes

“As it stands now Unmasking Jack the Ripper is far and away the best independent documentary on the subject to have come along, and it even puts to shame many of the televised productions of years past.

Unmasking really rests on the efforts of one man: Richard Jones. Familiar to viewers of the History Channels documentary on Jack the Ripper, Jones has been a relatively quiet contributor to the case until now. While many of us can be regularly found in the pages of journals such as the one you’re holding…Jones has been in the field, conducting walking tours and amassing a terrific knowledge of the East End’s history in general and the Jack the Ripper crimes in particular.

As not only the writer and director of the film but also its host and narrator, the success of Unmasking rests solely on Jones’ ability to convey this knowledge. Thankfully, he does so with exceptional skill, and the result is a fluid narration that is appropriately dramatic, even chilling at times, without stepping over the line into Cheeseville.

You can now count one more voice among the ever growing chorus calling Unmasking Jack the Ripper one of the best, if not the best, Ripper documentaries in years…”closequote
