The DIARY OF JACK THE RIPPER by Shirley Harrison



In the book Harrison seems to have started with the assumption that the diary is not a fake and that Maybrick was really the Ripper and then built a narrative around that without seriously trying to find any proof that would prove or disprove the theory. lots of experts in fact and they have every possible opinion: the ink is from Victorian times, the ink isn't from Victorian times. I missed an instances where she actually took something from the diary and made an effort to check if that could be verified. According to the diary Maybrick killed to more prostitues, one before and one after the Ripper-killings, in Manchester. Harrison brushes over this, claiming it's impossible to find out more about this. Really? When I checked newspaper-archives for a term-paper I found loads from the 19th century.

The argument made was written well and adds to the conversation but I'm not to the "beyond a reasonable doubt" mindset. Although the book has a thesis for some college course feel, it doesn't read as dry as one might suspect. It has made me very interested in Mrs. F Maybrick's story, however, Harrison did such a good job summarizing that I don't have inclination to... well maybe her autobiography.

I have read many books on the Ripper murders - some have made me laugh. Joined Casebook and read still more books from their recommendations. I would NEVER call me a Ripperologist. Just someone interested. I read "The final Chapter" by Paul Feldman and actually I could not keep up...too many people and too many foggy references. And I finally said "Where is the Freaking Diary?"

Then I came to Shirley Harrison - what she says makes sense. I am still wary on the background of WHERE this diary was all this time....

However - (as of now) I DO think this is a diary of James Maybrick. I sincerely hope to God that is the Ripper. There is probably no way we can find this out - that is too bad

Fascinating read. Very detailed. Excellent pictures. Writer does not tell reader to believe anything. Just gives the facts as they are. No spin.

It's said that most murders are solved in the first 48 hours, or not at all. How many murders are solved after 123 years? None, of course--but that doesn't mean that a chilling new take on the facts regarding a classic can't be fun. The diary of Maybrick, even if its a hoax, is a good one, filled with the obligatory shudders and goosebumps--and the analysis of that "journal" lends it just the right touch of credence. It doesn't have to be real to be scary, just a little bit believable when it's late at night and no one else is home.The Burn Farm

Being a writer, I am always reading as well as writing. This book will remain in my resource section. What finds that can be hidden in old tins!
lets go baby
I love forensics and murder mysteries because I try to think ahead of the story, but the story of Jack remains a mystery still. What is interesting is the men who were suspects and why, including a Prince of England. Whoever it was, they were pretty sick and somehow were confident they wouldn't get caught. Hmmmmm

I was happily surprised to see that not only was the transcript of the diary included, along with a typed version, but there was a LOT of other excellently written content. It was a very entertaining read and I would recommend it highly to anyone interested in Jack the Ripper, or serial killers in general.
