Product description

'The unknown brought death and terror to the streets of Victorian London's East End in 1888. Detective Inspector Edmund 'Teddy' Reid, the head of the Whitechapel detctive force, was tasked with solving the mystery. This is his story. Edmund John James Reid joined the Met. Police force, rose through the ranks whilst serving in South London and was transferred to the notorious East End where he achieved renown with the capture of such infamous criminals as the Bethnal Green poisoner, the Great Silk Robbers and the one-armed King of the Coiners. Reid led his men in a relentless pursuit of the Whitechapel Murderer throughout the horrific series of slayings which spanned the years 1888 to 1891. After his retirement in 1896, Reid often reminisced on his involvement in the great investigation. He addressed all the theories as to the identity of Jack the Ripper that were aired during his lifetime, both those of his fellow Ripper hunters and those of the armchair detectives. This book contains more new information on this series of crimes and the people involved than any other previous book on the subject'. 27 Illus. + Index. Very good copy. Dust jacket protected with cellophane
