60s ripperA serial-killer nicknamed Jack the Stripper murdered eight women in London during the mid-sixties but he was never caught, despite an extensive and expensive police manhunt.

Was it because the woman were prostitutes and the general public had little sympathy for them? Or maybe the killer had inside information about the investigation? And is he still alive?

In The Hunt For The ’60s Ripper, Robin Jarossi takes a close look at the police investigation, the policemen involved, and tragic lives of the killer’s victims.

This is a fascinating look at a series of crimes that were very much a product of their times. Recommended.
