Title: 7 Faces of Jack the Ripper (2014).

Jack the Ripper is a gothic tale of Victorian conspiracies, the supernatural, secret societies and the police.

Melvin Harris was instrumental in exposing the so-called "Ripper Diaries". Drawing on newly uncovered material on the man and the murders, and using modern FBI methods of tracing serial killes, Harris builds a case against the man he names as the true Ripper; a man who was interviewed by police at the time, and had inside information on the killings. The book also includes the memoirs of Baroness Cremers, the business partner of the man named. Harris is the author of "Jack the Ripper: the Bloody Truth".

Authis
While the author seems overzealous in condemning the theories of others,he does little to support his own.In fact some of the evidence that he tries to discredit is more compelling than his own theories, which he presents as gospel.

Melvin Harris's book is a must-read for those interested in Jack the Ripper.

Being a true crime writer myself, I must vehemently disagree with the previous reviewer who is of the opinion that Harris had not researched his subject well. Nonsense! He does not leave a 'stone unturned' in this gruesome story.

I have read (and studied) quite a few Ripper books and I learned a lot from this book by Harris.
GAZANIK
I have studied the Ripper lore for a few years,and always appreciate a good read. The text is extremely well written. However, the scenarios are not adequately described. I have had the wonderful fortune of taking a Jack the Ripper walk in London and seeing the murder sites in person. Perhaps after that, my view is a bit jaded, but I have heard arguments on the killer's identity and have always thought of the suspect named in this novel a minor one. But, it is enlightening to hear another's opinion. For the very reasonable price of this novel, I would recommend it, but I do believe there to be more historical ponderings into this subject. All in all, an interesting read at the very least.
Flash_back
This is yet another of the many books claiming to identify J the R. This one focuses on a wierd person named Stephenson or D'Onston, his first name changes from Robert to Rosslyn. The case seems to be based on hearsay, and the subject's own ego. He repeatedly wrote giving his theories to the media and police, and really anyone who would listen. The theory is largely unsubstantiated and the author does little to make us believe in his theories. He just says that all the others are wrong and he's right. Great ego, less great book.
uspeh
Harris produces another incisive analysis of one of the major contemporary suspects, Robert D'Onston Stephenson. His arguments as always are cogent and very readable. While Stephenson is still just a suspect with no concrete proof against him it still enthralls the reader to hear the story of his amazing life, from serving in the Italian army under Garibaldi to his associations with various occultist personalities of the late nineteenth century. Harris is a cruel master when it comes to theory, even his own, and Stephenson must at least be considered possible of the Jack the Ripper crimes. A must read for true crime buffs.
Oparae
Harris is infamous for championing two different suspects in different books, and neither argument holds water. Harris is very quick to debunk all theories but his own, even if other theories are more plausible (and coherent).
