In 1888 the unknown brought death and terror to the streets of Victorian London's East End. The Man Who Hunted Jack the Ripper is the story of Detective Inspector Edmund Reid who was head of the Whitechapel detective force. Having joined the Metropolitan Police Force, Reid rose through the ranks and was eventually transferred to the notorious East End. It was at this time that he assumed responsibility to lead his men in a relentless pursuit of Jack the Ripper; his pursuit of the Whitechapel murderer spanned the years 1888 to 1891. Reid retired from the police force in 1896 but, in the subsequent years, he often reminisced on his involvement in the hunt for the infamous serial killer; from the comfort of his armchair he carefully considered any new theory that came to light about the identity of Jack the Ripper. 'The Man Who Hunted Jack the Ripper' recounts the full story of a series of murders that shocked the world. REVIEWS "Comfortingly, this is not just another rehashing of the Ripper murders that terrorized Victorian London... ...add to our knowledge of one of history's most notorious serial killers...informative and entertaining addition to literature." Past in Review, 11/2010The Creators of the BBC drama series have the authors of this book to thank for painstakingly uncovering the documents complied by Victorian Detective Inspector Edmund Reid, the Whitechapel police man who spent years trying to track down Jack The Ripper. Reid meticulously recorded all of the names and activities of every officer involved and the leads they fruitlessly pursued. Although his team failed to identify the Ripper, Reid maintained a lifelong interest in his quarry and this book adds fascinating detail and colour to the huge body of research on this most shocking of serial killers."Daily Mail, UK
