Summary

“It's me, love … I'm The Yorkshire Ripper.”

With new material from personal interviews with Peter Sutcliffe–I'm the Yorkshire Ripper offers a completely new insight into the shocking life and times of one of Britain's most notorious serial killers.

When Peter Sutcliffe spoke those words to his wife Sonia following his arrest in 1981, it marked the end of a killing spree which had terrorised northern England for five years. The nation had been appalled yet gripped by the Ripper and was now fascinated by the man behind the headlines.

But despite millions of words being written about the case since his arrest 40 years ago, the full Peter Sutcliffe story has never been told–until now.

Based on a vast quantity of raw material collected from Sutcliffe himself over a period of 16 years, ‘I'm the Yorkshire Ripper' is the compelling account of the most terrifying series of murders in British history–much of it in the killer's own words.

Shockingly intimate portrayal …

… of a monster. Fascinating insight into the murders and the motivation (or pretend motivation) of the killer. Horrifying, but addictive reading even if his justification is obviously fake & his lack of remorse infuriating.

new and interesting facts

loved the informative delivery of Sutcliffe's life and murders. an interesting insight on Sutcliffe and how he viewed himself, his daily life in the years he struck fear into every woman in Leeds, Bradford, Yorkshire. I was a child, and even I recall the Ripper.
It's scary how he perceived his murders as righteous, and expresses no remorse, but is so egocentric, the theft of 2 bottles of coke from the fridge at prison left him incandescent. Even the death of his mother, then in later life his father, cast no glimmer of humanity into this monster. He saw the survivors of his attacks, and the families of the deceased as glory hunters, loving the drama, out to make money.
Few are truly evil, and it's no surprise he was firm friends with Jimmy Saville and Ian Huntley.
Birds of a feather....
If ever there was a hell, it was truly created for these lowlife, he can continue to compete with Brady for the most notorious monster to walk these lands in whatever dungeons they now inhabit.
Prison was too good for them.
And this book highlights Sutcliffe's narcissistic and sociopathic traits.
Excellent read.

Could have been perfect with a good narrator

This book was incredibly well written and researched but the narrator didn't alter his voice between narration and quotations, which threw me sometimes

In depth account, very interesting

Highlighted the complete incompetence of the police force. Outrageous that Sutcliffe was allowed to devastate so many lives for so long. Very informative reading. My thoughts remain with the victims & their families.

Excellent

A terrific listen. Very well presented and researched. The narrator was superb. Sutcliffe sounded so together with his comments throughout. He wasn't of course and his lack of any empathy or remorse for his victims and their families was staggering. Yet, he was all sympathy for his wife, Saville and of course himself. Hopefully, his God will now judge him.
