I realised it's over 130 years (131 this month, actually) since this creep killed all those women in London. I've seen From Hell but is there a definitive book that discusses everything that happened? Suspects, victims, etc. I found lots of books on Jack the Ripper, but nothing that stands out as "this is the one book that covers everything" (except for who he really was, of course).
I think if all that was to happen today he would be apprehended in a very short space of time - imagine how much information the Police could release to the public, and all the mediums they would have available to do it. Communications back then were mostly newspapers, as there was definitely no TV (and I'm fairly sure no radio).
