Summary

After Jack the Ripper terrorized London in 1888, he would spark a mystery when he disappeared, his string of violent and horrific murders ending as quickly as they began, leaving one of the world's oldest unsolved crimes in his wake.

Now, in 1907, biographer Charles Hapgood is about to be visited a man who astonishingly claims that he was the famous Ripper and that he wishes to tell his tale before his coming death. Skeptical at first, Hapgood agrees to hear his story, only to soon be shown indisputable proof that his visitor speaks the truth and is who he claims to be.

As Hapgood listens to the man’s tale, he is drawn into a world of pain, cruelty, horror, and sadness, discovering how an innocent child grew up to be the greatest living monster the world has ever seen. Hapgood begins to fear for his own safety as the man once known as Jack The Ripper tells his story in his own words, a tale which goes far beyond the known timeline of his horrific crimes and reaches new depths of terror and depravity that Hapgood could never have imagined.

Brilliant book but should have been English narrator

This is a great book and the narrator is very good but for this book I just believe that it would have been better if the narrator was English instead of American and that is why I have given it four stars.

Kills time

The story wasn't too bad. I had a hard time listening to the narrator. He sounded like a robot and I got lost a few times when he went from the character speaking to the story line. Wasn't all bad though. I will listen to it again

Awkward

The dialogue in the story is awkward. It’s stilted and unnatural. The characters feel as if they are interpretations of things read in nonfiction books about Jack the Ripper.
