View Full Version : Inspector Edmund Reid

Thread devoted to discussion about Edmund Reid...balloon ascensionist and Inspector in "H" Division.
He is also the subject of Stewart Evans' book..."The Man Who Hunted Jack The Ripper".
A little tidbit found elsewhere as well:
I have a feeling that Grey Hunter has a special place in his heart for Inspector Reid...maybe he would care to share his sentiments on Inspector Reid.

The book was actually co-written with Nicholas Connell. A small correction but a significant one. I hope Nick Connell comes back with another Ripper book one day soon!

I echo that comment. I have just finished, well quite a while ago actually, Nicks book on Dew. Loved it.
I know Stewart thinks very highly of him......I can see why.

This was considered the first case of significance that future Inspector Reid made while a detective officer:

This may be the last noteworthy event in Bethnal Green on the part of Reid ( once again with Sgt. Enright )
