      I was beginning to wonder the same thing, Howard. Glad to see others are receiving theirs.

      Yours truly,

        Updated? Is there new stuff?

        My copy has arrived. I've just finished 1 other book, so the forgotten victims is due to be started upon this week (sorry Tom, that means the bank holiday murders will now be read just after...)

          The paperback edition of 'The London of Jack the Ripper' is the most up to date version. And the paperback edition was first published 2009/10 with a matt cover. Can't remember the exact year of hand. It was reprinted last year, again in paperback but with a glossy cover. It is the same text as the 2009/10 edition. I am not to sure if it will get revised again. Probably not advisable at the moment with the amount of work going on in Durward Street and Mitre Square and the future of the Fruit Exchange is still uncertain.

              Hi Tom,

              Is that the bombshell which appeared in my 2005 article on Baxter?

                My copy came last week but I've had no time to actually read it other than a quick scan through the chapter dealing with Carrie Brown's murder. Sadly, a lot of errors here.

                  Hi Adam, probably. Don't be offended. My mind was in a different area of the case back then, so that detail wouldn't have jumped out at me. That's why I always say you occasionally have to go back and read stuff again because new things will pop out at you that didn't before because your perspective changes over time.

                  Yours truly,

                  Tom Wescott

                    Thank you Rob.
                    I do like my hardback version!

                        Here is an excellent review of John and Paul’s book by Judith Flanders, one of our very best authors and historians. It was published on her website a few days ago.

                        http://www.judithflanders.co.uk/jack-the-ripper-review/

                        Incidentally, I have a spare copy of Forgotten Victims. Yale sent me a review copy a couple of months ago and they kindly sent me a second copy when it was published earlier this month. A duplicate copy is too precious to lie around unused. Let’s have a little competition.

                        Name one other book co-authored by John and Paul. PLEASE SEND ME YOUR ANSWERS AS A PRIVATE MESSAGE. First name pulled out of the hat on Friday evening at 22:00 wins the book. I’ll then announce the winner, contact them and obtain their address, and send the book free of charge. Solutions welcome from all over the world.

                        If you don’t win, and you don’t already own a copy, BUY ONE. It’s that good.

                        (How: Hope this competition is okay with you.)

                            Hi Dave, please send that free copy to Scott Nelson so he'll have something to read.

                            And ask Judith to post her review to Amazon.com/uk where it can do Paul and John some good.

                              Errr, that's OK Dave. Give it to some underprivileged Ripperology student instead.

                                I say give it to Mike Richards, because every poster should own at least one Ripper book.

                                Yours truly,
